Did that incredibly complex system upgrade command sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=rawhide --exclude=sdubby && sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot (sdubby and grubby had a conflict?)
Rebooted into Rawhide, deleted a lot of the unnecessary KDE apps preinstalled, did a sudo dnf autoremove
Made the first snapshot of the system, plain KDE Rawhide
Removed the entire plasma Desktop from TTY: sudo dnf remove --setopt protected_packages= plasma-desktop @kde-desktop -y (Hack to avoid protection of plasma-desktop, found on Reddit)
Did nother sudo dnf autoremove
Made another snapshot “Rawhide base”
Added the COPR repo and tried to do sudo dnf install -y @kde-desktop
Problem here is, that the COPR Plasma6 packages are not preferred over the Plasma5 ones. So they conflict and nothing installs. The same happened when just trying to update after adding the COPR to the normal system, thats why I cleaned it up completely.
How could I prefer the Qt6 packages instead, is there a way? I thought the repo with the higher version would be chosen automatically.
Do I need to install the packages with rpm or some other very manual way?
I am interested in evaluating KDE Plasma 6 on Fedora Rawhide. I attempted to use this COPR repository but encountered issues in the following two scenarios:
Starting with Fedora Rawhide running Plasma 5, then attempting an upgrade with the COPR repository enabled.
Installing Fedora Rawhide with Budgie and the COPR repository enabled. In this case, I was presented with the SDDM login page that displayed only a password field on a blank screen. Since I utilize passwordless login, pressing enter resulted in the system freezing at the lock screen.
So basically i`ve added Plasma6-nightly Copr, then ran dnf --refresh upgrade && dnf distro-sync. After that it installed half of plasma6 packages, so i needed to manually remove kde-connect package due to dependency errors from plasma5, then ran upgrade && distro-sync again, and it catched all remaining stuff of plasma6. All was made with working Rawhide KDE system on the fly.
Just follow my guide to upgrade your rawhide to latest Plasma alpha and that’s it. I`m not using Kinoite for no reason, lol, but sticking to rawhide instead (i like to mess with my system). Anyways latest Plasma 6 based Kinoite is using rawhide branch for plasma stuff as described above.
