How to test Fedora Kinoite

Fedora Kinoite is now available in the Fedora ostree repository! :tada: Currently, only the rawhide branch is available, pending the 35 stable release.

To give it a try, you have several options:

  • Installing from scratch:

  • Updating from an existing Silverblue or unofficial Kinoite installation:

    • Make sure you have the official Fedora ostree repository as a remote:
      $ ostree remote refs fedora | grep kinoite
      fedora:fedora/rawhide/aarch64/kinoite
      fedora:fedora/rawhide/ppc64le/kinoite
      fedora:fedora/rawhide/x86_64/kinoite
      
    • Optional but strongly recommended: Pin your current (hopefully working) deployment to make sure you can always go back to a working state it if anything happens:
      $ sudo ostree admin pin 0
      
    • Rebase to Fedora Kinoite:
      $ sudo rpm-ostree rebase fedora:fedora/rawhide/x86_64/kinoite
      

Any help updating the documentation is welcomed! The sources are in Overview - fedora-kde/kinoite-docs - Pagure.io.

Sometimes, we might not be booting the default deployment β€˜0’ . If we want to pin our current deployment, the way I am using is run rpm-ostree status then pin the active deployment. The deployment numbering is from top to bottom, starts with β€˜0’ .
