systemd is included (as it is Fedora 15) but does not really work by
default. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=704783 describes
the same problem and points to a solution:
- remove /var/run, /var/lock and /media from /etc/rwtab and reboot
The change was made on a date after the version of initscripts that is
installed was created. There are no Fedora ARM updates yet, but maybe a
new version fixes it automatically.

Unfortunately the fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo are non-functional
for Fedora 15 on ARM. Instead, I am now using the most current builds
directly from a repository on the koji infrastructure:
Does it make sense to create tickets for these kind of issues? Or is
this email sufficient to help others?
Thanks for the release,
