Sadly, DNF5 and the new Anaconda installer didn't make it to the party, in case you were wondering.

Thats a huge release.

  • KDE Plasma 6
  • KDE and GNOME Wayland only
  • testing images for COSIC (well not officially Fedora)
  • atomic distros now are less broken (can update grub)
  • LUKS screen on the atomic distros now supports non US layout
  • Anaconda webUI only on Workstation?

Just finished upgrading, all went smooth and Gnome 46 kicks ass so far. VRR is finally here!

I've worn the same fedora since 79! no need to upgrade to a new cap!

Fedora should be the default distro we recommend to beginners. Everything just works despite being up-to-date unlike Ubuntu. Still waiting for DNF5, though.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

Flatpaks never worked for me though, last I tried was 38.

Also didn't something happen in relation to some encoding?

Pop!_OS would be my recommendation, semi-rolling for sweet driver updates, Ubuntu based for easy searching (how to do x on Ubuntu) and Large software support.

I just remembered that Pop!_OS doesn't ship with vanilla gnome, sadly, which degrades its position as a recommendation.

I'd argue the "selling" point of Pop!_OS are their non-vanilla GNOME features.

That's what I hear Pop people saying.

For me, for some packages, only the RPM works, and others only the flatpak works, and yet others still both work, or none. Seems highly dependant on something but tbh I'm too new to know if it's the packages themselves, something to do with dependencies, hardware, or whatever else.

Any word as to why?

Links to the related FESCo items are in https://www.phoronix.com/news/Fedora-41-Switch-DNF5-Approved but in short, RHEL10 needing to branch off Fedora 40.

I was really hoping for dnf5

[-] TheGrandNagus 8 points 3 weeks ago

Had the Gnome/Workstation variant beta installed on my laptop for a while with zero issues. Looking forward to updating my desktop too.

Next update should be massive. DNF5 to come, the new installer, loads of the Sovereign Tech Fund improvements to things like accessibility, security, the display stack, etc.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

I looked at the agreed changes for 41 but couldn't see any accessibility. Do you know what changes are coming?

[-] baru 3 points 3 weeks ago

They often talk about accessibility plans and changes on Planet GNOME. No idea what is coming though.

I'll check out the KDE flavour

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

Super exciting stuff and more on the way

Anyone tried the KDE variant with nvidia?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago

Not on fedora, but on Neon with a 3070. KDE 6 will lock up on Xorg, while electron apps will flash on Wayland, though there is a flag to enable Wayland support, it keeps dropping off of discord every time it updates. Running nvidia 550 proprietary, haven't gotten to use the open ones yet as I need cuda for work

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

I have updated my existing installation of fedora 39 kde to 40 and the nvidia kernel module didn't load properly so nouveau was used instead, than I have redone the setup for the dmks because it wasn't present in the config file to load it and everything worked fine for now. Anyway on fedora 40 you need to install xorg yourself

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Nobara 39 (Fedora spin) is amazing with KDE, 2080ti.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Most of my widgets and latte dock don't work on latte dock don't work on plasma 6, so just know that you won't have that if you're planning to upgrade.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

I just tried it in a VM, and it had me jump through some hoops for flatpaks to work. Not ideal for newbies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
