I was hoping there is an easy way to install Fedora 34 Scientific with rescue mode. This way I could install the video card drivers from nvidia without it freezing.
Everytime I run the boot disc it freezes, so I was hoping it’s possible to boot in without hardware acceleration or at least very minimal rendering like a rescue mode or safe mode.
Perhaps I could upgrade to Fedora 34 Scientific from my current version of Fedora. I am running a cinammon de though
The scientific lab is just a collection of packages on a Fedora KDE system, so you can just install whatever packages you want on an existing Fedora install—you don’t have to reinstall with the Fedora Scientific image.
Take a look at the existing groups and install what you need:
sudo dnf grouplist
Engineering and Scientific
“Engineering and Scientific” seems to have quite a few useful tools.
You can even just individually install tools that are in the Scientific lab image using DNF.
PS: please ask your questions in the appropriate sub category in the #english category. This was asked under the #community:contributing-to-fedora category but it isn’t about contribution, so I’ve moved it here now.
Thanks a lot thats really cool. These softwares are so generous to be open source. How do these developers make money who build these programs?
Also can you tell me whats the difference between these commands:
sudo dnf -y install kmod-nvidia
sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia
Some of them are funded by research bodies, others do it without pay. A lot of FOSS software is done without pay in free time (even here on the forum, few of us are paid to help others or work on Fedora tasks).
Can you please open specific topics for specific questions? This topic has a solution—it is not the place to ask unrelated questions now
Have you had a chance to read this post yet?
Thats incredible, thanks for that.
Sure, but not all of it. I will read it again thanks
Okay back to my topic of this,
If I want to install all the packages that Fedora Scientific has is there a command for that.
I tried the command you gave and it listed out all the software categories but I am interested in quite a few namely, I am interested in these categories:
C Development Tools and Libraries
You can install them all using
sudo dnf groupinstall, just how you can install any packages from the repos. All labs/spins/images that the community ships can not include all the packages from the repos. They select the most commonly used packages and include those, and then users (like you) can install other bits as required.
Great thanks for explaining that, so for the educational software install I would type
sudo dnf educational-software install
Is there some literature or command where I could see the list of programs that are included in this group and install individually.
sudo dnf group info 'group name'
thanks a lot.
Would the below programs be in the software centre to browse through as well?

Not necessarily. The software centre lists graphical applications which is a subset of the software in the repositories.
For more information on dnf groups, please read
man dnf. That tells you how to view, list, install, remove groups.
