Rebasing from Silverblue F28 to 29

desktop

#1

I am looking for the correct way to rebase from SB F28 to SB F29. Via the command line, is it the following?

rebase fedora/29/x86_64/workstation


#2

can you try
rpm-ostree rebase fedora/29/x86_64/silverblue


#3

I see from the Silverblue cheatsheet (found here: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora-silverblue/_attachments/silverblue-cheatsheet.pdf) that the correct command is:

rpm-ostree rebase <REMOTE>:<BRANCH>

I can see what my current remote & and branch are from the refspec given by running:

rpm-ostree status

Some of the output is as follows:

State: idle
AutomaticUpdates: disabled
Deployments:
● ostree://fedora-workstation:fedora/28/x86_64/workstation
Version: 28.20180902.0 (2018-09-02 04:34:23)

So I believe the correct command to rebase the system to SB29 is:

rpm-ostree rebase fedora-workstation:fedora/29/x86_64/workstation

Correct me if I am wrong please


#4

Yeah, that is the correct full command.

During a rebase operation, if the remote isn’t specified, rpm-ostree will try to find the branch specified on the currently active remote.

The command that @dustymabe provided is just a shorter way of using the command you derived.


#5

The problem is that we “re-branded” Atomic Workstation to Silverblue, which means you need to use the fedora/29/x86_64/silverblue branch now


#6

Thank you both @dustymabe and @miabbott


#7

Is there a list somewhere of all the Fedora-maintained branches one can rebase to?


#8

which means you need to use the fedora/29/x86_64/silverblue branch now

Yes, though note that until there’s a new compose https://pagure.io/workstation-ostree-config/c/87a4410d2f42485673dfbce27c1a0e0ce847d91c?branch=f29 will break everyone using LVM (which is the default).

I have fedora-atomic as the remote name here, it will vary currently.

#10

@walters answer should be the same for most Silverblue users who have the fedora-workstation remote installed


#11

Also worth noting, @walters has a ticket open with Fedora rel-eng to delete the workstation refs in favor of the silverblue refs

#12

Thanks!! I guess I need to start reading rpm-ostree docs.


#13

Hmmm …

Hi I am getting the above error


#15

Sigh… see https://github.com/ostreedev/ostree/issues/773. basically the gpgkey you currently have configured for the remote is the f28 gpg key. You’ll have to change it out for the f29 gpgkey. For example:

[root@vanilla-f29-atomic ~]# cat /etc/ostree/remotes.d/fedora-atomic.conf 
[remote "fedora-atomic"]
url=https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/atomic/repo/
gpg-verify=true
gpgkeypath=/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-29-primary

Find your file in the /etc/ostree/remotes.d/ directory and update it to say 29 instead of 28.


#16

I think the missing GPG signature in the keyring is a bug.

A workaround for me was to download https://getfedora.org/static/429476B4.txt and save it as “fedora-29-key.txt”, then run:

ostree remote gpg-import fedora-workstation -k fedora-29-key.txt

#17

Thanks Garrett, that seems to have done the trick!


#18

though note that until there’s a new compose

That happened now, it includes lvm2 again.

#19

I got Silverblue 29 rebase to work:

sudo ostree remote gpg-import fedora-workstation -k /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-29-x86_64
sudo rpm-ostree rebase fedora-workstation:fedora/29/x86_64/silverblue

but the boot didn’t come all the way to to a login screen. gdm started but that’s as far as it got

It’s a bit blurry but if you zoom in you can read it -“Started GNOME Display Manager”.

I bet it’s your gnome-shell extensions that are stopping you from reaching the desktop. They probably aren’t compatible with gnome 3.30
