Main drive is labeled fedora_localhost-live


Is that something to do with the live image? is this normal? everything seems to be working fine, but that just seems like a weird name for the main drive. I’m on KDE spin btw.
Anyway no big deal I guess. Just curious…
Would like to possibly change the name but also don’t want to mess anything up.


Those are defaults used by Fedora installer:

  • localhost-live is the default hostname, unless provided by the local DHCP server.
  • fedora_${HOSTNAME} is the default value for Btrfs label and VG name.

It can be reconfigured during installation, or later like this:

sudo hostnamectl hostname HOSTNAME
sudo btrfs filesystem label / LABEL

ah I see ok, great thanks!
