I tried the minimal image with the following command, and it works
fine for me via serial console (I did not attach HDMI output to my RPi3.
Instead I have serial connected). The configuration wizard shows in
serial console as expected, and after I config it I can access my RPi 3.
# sudo fedora-arm-image-installer --addconsole --resizefs --image
Fedora-Minimal-30-1.2.aarch64.raw.xz --media /dev/mmcblk0 --target rpi3
Consider RPi3 do not have a lot of memory, and GNOME is memory hungry, I
would suggest you to try minimal image, or some other lighweight desktop

During the boot I saw a few times an X arrow cursor on a black screen
(that was not reacting to mouse movements BTW).
With ALT-Fx I also have console logins, but root asks for a password
that I don't know.
Any suggestions? Is this supposed to work?
Or should I have a better chance when trying the F31 devel version I see in
