Some time ago I set up an Atomic server for backups of whole hard disks which has worked really well.
I have changed my workstation from a regular F30 XFCE spin to SB F30 and have used @Siosm 's “kinoite” stuff to get XFCE layered - this is where I have a lot of Qs which I will post in separate batches in case they generate more than expected amounts of discussion. Eventually I want to be able to create my own minimal (just networking - no DE or PulseAudio) SB iso as a base for a few different situations.
Once I get my workstation substantially operating the way I want, I will start switching over my F30 server (Qmail + Docker with Jekyll and Rails sites) to Atomic as well.
I will ask Qs as I come across the need rather than in some sort of priority order - my first batch is:
On my workstation, because I want to keep the underlying OS as clean as possible, I am starting an exercise of “containerising everything” - so I used toolbox to create a new container just for Chrome (I have a suspicion that Chrome is responsible for instability on my machine so I want to isolate it - see my post: “Using Silverblue for system debugging?”). This working, however, the default font being used in Chrome (ie for this text) is some fixed-width font that doesn’t look very nice and takes up more space - I presume this is because the font that is usually used by Chrome is not installed in the toolbox / podman container by default? How do I find out which one is missing? - I presume I can then just install it with dnf as usual? Is there a more sensible approach to fixing this problem? Is it of greater concern for some reason than I realise?
