[fedora-arm] No devices with F39 on Raspberry Pi

Just checked the F39 rc1.2 on an raspi4 with Server Edition.

The fix for the display issue ( does work for Server, too.

But there is a next issue:

If I try to adjust the LVM volume to the size of the SD card, I can enlarge the partition mmcblk0p3 using cfdisk as usual without issues. But with pvresize I get

> $ sudo pvresize /dev/mmcblk0p3
> [sudo] password for pb:
> Cannot use /dev/mmcblk0p3: device is not in devices file
> 0 physical volume(s) resized or updated / 0 physical volume(s) not resized

A lsblk

> # lsblk
> mmcblk0 179:0 0 59.5G 0 disk
> ├─mmcblk0p1 179:1 0 600M 0 part /boot/efi
> ├─mmcblk0p2 179:2 0 1G 0 part /boot
> └─mmcblk0p3 179:3 0 57.9G 0 part
> └─fedora-root 253:0 0 5.4G 0 lvm /
> zram0 252:0 0 3.7G 0 disk [SWAP]

looks fine and as expected.

And with cockpit -> storage the category „devices" is empty (instead of listing a LVM volume fedora as to expect). It seems, there is something badly wrong with the image. Hence the error message with arm-installer after writing the image onto disk:

> = Writing image complete!
> mount: /tmp/root: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'.
> dmesg(1) may have more information after failed mount system call.

as mentioned in an earlier mail and as discussed at the go/no-go meeting ( )

The bottom line is that Server Edition is still unusable on Raspi4 and any other SBC, unfortunately. What to do and how to proceed (the next go/no-go meeting is in 4 days expecting rc 1.4 tomorrow or shortly after) ?
