I'm currently in the process of trying to generate a new image with some
custom kickstarts for the raspberry pi. I'm basing these off of the
fedora-arm-minimal kickstart and I've sunk a bunch of time chasing anaconda
errors, I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into what I might be doing
wrong? Here's the output from livemedia-creator:

I've also looked at other ways of going about this process including:
Which produced an image, but I wasn't able to get it to boot.
Just wondering if anyone thinks it would be possible to install fedora 31
on a Pinebook Pro? (aarch64) I have nothing against debian but I find
working in a red hat environment easier and more useful with my job. Seems
like a nice little laptop with a decent amount of ram. Any ideas on how to
get started would be much appreciated if its even possible.
I did install fedora 31 (beta) on a raspberry pi 3b which I still have.
Would it be similar process? where you dump an image onto a sd card with a
command line tool? (arm-image-installer) Or would I just create a
bootable usb disk with the aarch64 iso file? At first I guess I'd want to
use an external drive to hold fedora so as to not mess up the pre-install
debian until I know what I'm doing.
