The installation is easy enough, it’s just fedora. I did everything as a default install, with the only exception that I encrypted my disk.
I loved how lean the system was on first boot! Some people complain about not having default software, as far as I’m concerned, if I have vi and a package manager, I’m good. Having Firefox as a bonus was all I needed.
Toolbox is great. It about as straight forward as possible to setup.
Things that I thought a bit weird:
- rpm-ostree works without sudo?!?
- flatpaks install and remove without sudo?!?
Is my sudo somehow borked? I am id=1000, I’m not logged in as root.
I couldn’t get some videos to work in Firefox, i watched Fedora Classroom Getting to Know Silverblue, and saw in the video that the author used a layered package called compat-ffmpeg28, which I installed, and now my videos work as expected.
Is it somehow possible to name a specific ostree commit? Now I have five times the same name in grub.
Toolbox gives an error the first time I enter a new toolbox
$ toolbox create -c temp Created container: temp Enter with: toolbox enter --container temp $ toolbox enter -c temp toolbox: unable to copy /etc/profile.d/toolbox.sh to container temp
The next time entering works, weird.
Overall, Silverblue is great, some minor papercuts, but nothing that can’t be fixed. Looking forward to using this for the foreseeable future.
