No--planet CCRMA has some i386 pd packages, but not arm.  If you want
to run Fedora and Pd, you will need to compile it.    If only you knew
the power of the dark side, and by dark side, I mean Debian.

If you didn't get your pre-order in time for this batch, you'll have
to wait a month, I bet.  By the time I got to work this morning, it
was too late.
