It needs 10 GB of drive space. There are only 8 GB on the Pi 2 SD card.

Use a larger SD card. These are reasonably cheap - I bought a few real cheap 8 and 16 gb cards for use with my Pi's. It also means you don't have to destroy any existing system to install Fedora on it.

Yes, it will run. Here is one guide:

You will need to download the minimal image of F22 instead of F21. Here is the link to it:

The rest should work as described on the other page.

Some people here talk about a Fedora 21 REMIX specifically for Raspberry 2. Maybe you find there a link to a F22 remix as well.

The custom build of Fedora for the Pi is called Pidora, it's available here:

1 : " * "Fedora Remix" and "Fedora" are separate and distinct. Do not confuse official Fedora distributions with a Fedora Remix. Fedora Remix products allow anyone in the community to create special derivations that may contain some Fedora software. The official Fedora platform contains only 100% free and open source software that is legally redistributable everywhere in the world.*"

@cobra The last Pidora update is from 2014 and the question is about F22. So Pidora wont help him in this case. But it would be a good option as well if they had a newer version.
