[fedora-arm] Fedora on ROCK 5 Model B


I've installed Fedora 40 Rawhide on my Rock 5

Short howto:

What you need:
dd this Image on a SD-Card


dd this Image on a USB stick

Put both in your Rock 5B and boot. I've done the Net-install installation with KDE Wayland. The SD-Card with UEFI is needed for booting.


1. GPU:
root@rockpi5:~# inxi -Gx
 Message: No PCI device data found.
 Display: server: X.Org v: 23.2.2 with: Xwayland v: 23.2.2 driver: X:
   loaded: modesetting dri: swrast gpu: N/A resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz
 API: EGL v: 1.5 drivers: kms_swrast,swrast platforms:
   active: gbm,x11,surfaceless,device inactive: wayland
 API: OpenGL v: 4.5 vendor: mesa v: 23.3.0 glx-v: 1.4 direct-render: yes
   renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 17.0.4 128 bits)
 API: Vulkan v: 1.3.268 drivers: llvmpipe surfaces: xcb,xlib devices: 1

How can I improve GPU Performance ? Mali / Panfrost Driver are available but not loaded /used

root@rockpi5:~# rpm -ql mesa-dri-drivers-23.3.0-1.fc40.aarch64 | grep -i pan
root@rockpi5:~# rpm -ql mesa-dri-drivers-23.3.0-1.fc40.aarch64 | grep -i mali

Creating a custom xorg.conf doesn't make sense while using Wayland ?

2. Boot

Is there any way to boot Fedora direct from NVME instead using rock-5b_UEFI_Release_v0.9.1.img on SD-Card ?
