Fedora 40 Prerelease: Check needed repositories?

I’m using Fedora 40 Prerelease KDE Plasma Edition since weeks and get updates daily. Some days ago, I got an update that switched repositories to “test”.

Two days ago, KDE Plasma 6.0.1 was released, but till now I didn’t get it. So I’m wondering if all necessary repositories are enabled to get all the latest updates.

These are the repositories enabled and disabled in Discover:


Do I have to enable repositories?

You don’t have to do anything since you have updates-testing already.

It just takes a couple of days to build all the KDE Plasma packages and to appear on the repo mirrors.

See plasma-desktop | Package Info | koji, build is done since 2024-03-07 14:40:00, so it should be in the repo in 1-3 days. Also check https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?search=plasma-desktop

Good to know. And when testing is finished, updates-testing will be disabled automatically? Or do I have to switch repos manually then?

Thanks, @augenauf ! I just installed an Arch distro in the morning and was wondering that Plasma 6.0.1 was available there before it is on Fedora. :wink:

After release of F40, there will be an update to the package that provides the repos and updates-testing will be disabled. So nothing you need to do manually.
