Upgrading Fedora 23 to 24 using GNOME Software

Filed under

GNOME
HowTos

I’ve spent the last couple of days fixing up all the upgrade bugs in GNOME Software and backporting them to gnome-3-20. The idea is that we backport gnome-software plus a couple of the deps into Fedora 23 so that we can offer a 100% GUI upgrade experience. It’s the first time we’ve officially transplanted a n+1 GNOME component into an older release (ignoring my unofficial Fedora 20 whole-desktop backport COPR) and so we’re carefully testing for regressions and new bugs.

  • ​A big step forward in container standardization

    Server and cloud admins all agree that containers are great. What we don't agree on is which containers are the best. Rather than let this spark into a standards fire-fight, the Open Container Initiative (OCI), has sought to create common container standards, The newest of these is open container Image Format Spec project.

  • Fedora Workstation Phase 1 – Homestretch

    When we set of to do the Fedora Workstation we had some clear idea about where we wanted to take it, but we also realized there was a lot of cleaning up needed in our stack to make our vision viable. The biggest change we felt was needed to enable us was the move towards using application bundles as the primary shipping method for applications as opposed to the fine grained package universe that RPMS represent. That said we also saw the many advantages the packages brought in terms of easing security updates and allowing people to fine tune their system, so we didn’t want to throw the proverbial baby out with the bathwater. So we started investigating the various technologies out there, as we where of course not alone in thinking about these things. Unfortunately nothing clearly fit the bill of what we wanted and trying to modify for instance Docker to be a good technology for running desktop applications turned out to be nonviable. So we tasked Alex Larsson with designing and creating what today is known as xdg-app. Our requirements list looked something like this (in random order):

  • Multi selection in Anaconda

    Exciting news people! Anaconda now has the desired multiselection in Custom storage spoke which was required for a long time. You can try it in Fedora 24 alpha and Rawhide. I know, it should have been there already but there were way too many other issues to settle before this one.

  • Fedora Media Writer Test Day tomorrow! (2016-04-19)

    As part of this planned Change for Fedora 24, the Fedora graphical USB writing tool – formerly called “Live USB Creator”, and still technically called that in terms of source repos and filenames, but in the process of being rebranded as “Fedora Media Writer” – is being extensively revised and rewritten. The idea is the new tool will be sufficiently capable, reliable, and cross-platform usable that it can be the primary download for Fedora Workstation 24: the main ‘flow’ of the Workstation download page will run through the tool, instead of giving you a download link to the ISO file and various instructions for using it in different ways.

  • Looking for Records, Looking for Contributions

    A few days ago, the voting for the Supplemental Wallpaper for Fedora 24 opened. And I am impressed, how many Fedora contributors have voted so far, but I have to tell you that even I dont know the exact number yet. Nuancier is written in a way, that I cant look into the numbers before it is published. But Fedora Badges gives a little bit of an insight, but you have to see as we made that badge for the first time there was a lot of discussion about badges for voting, so it must be claimed manually and its not claimed by all who vote. But now we have already 207 badges for Fedora 24 claimed, compared to 89 for Fedora 23. So the amount of voters is already doubled and there is still nearly a week time for the votes!

  • Photography with the Fedora Design Suite

    If you’re like most people, then computers are a tool for doing what matters to you. You probably use your computer to do many other things you’re interested in — like photography, for instance. Fedora turns out to be perfect for creative pursuits like this.

    Riley Brandt is a YouTuber who’s big on open source but also into photography. He recently reviewed the Fedora Design Suite, a version of Fedora built on the Workstation edition, but adding lots of free creativity tools. It’s assembled and maintained by the amazing Fedora Design team, a community of artists and designers who use free and open source software to make Fedora beautiful.
