Problems while rebasing from rawhide back to 28


#1

Earlier I wanted to play a bit with rawhide. So I rebased to it and now I can’t seem to go back.

I’m not sure exactly what’s going on here but I think it’s related to this bug. If I were you I would reset your installation back to defaults and then add back in your layered packages.

so try the following

  • rpm-ostree ex reset && rpm-ostree rebase fedora/28/x86_64/workstation
  • reboot
  • rpm-ostree install ansible arduino chromium clang codeblocks gitflow gnome-tweaks go htop iftop iotop iptraf ipython3 java-1.8.0-openjdk keepassxc libreoffice libreoffice-langpack-pl nano pypy3 qbittorrent redis strace syncthing tmux vim youtube-dl
  • reboot

This will reset your installation back to f28 workstation and then you can add your layered packages back after the reboot. I don’t think you should lose any data as a result of this but please take a backup first before you run it.

Thank you. It worked.
