OK, my 1GB RAM was the problem, sigh... I guess the RAM-disk it creates
isn't big enough then. I changed RAM from 1024 to 2048 and now it works.
Thanks for your help, I'm still from the time we could run Linux
(with X11 !) on a 386 in 8 MB RAM... ;-). Still doubting whether
assuming "enough" RAM for temporary storage is such a good idea...
You can *run* Fedora with very little RAM, but you can't *install* it
with as little, due to memory usage by dnf during install when there is
no swap partition. Exactly how much is needed varies a bit depending on
whether you're doing a live install, what installer interface you're
using, how many packages you're installing, whether it's a full moon,
etc...I've seen it work with 512MB and fail with 1.5.
