I would use the F-13 alpha rootfs and not the F12 one. You can find a
link from the main ARM wiki page. There should be a F-13 beta out in
the next day or so. The F-13 release on ARM is going to be a bit hit
and miss but F-14 will be the clean one. I'll look at the xapian
package this evening to see why its not built in the F-13 instance.
