Hello everyone. I’ve been using Fedora Silverblue for a day and found it extremely amazing. rpm-ostree is awesome. It was my dream to use a “git” styled package manager when I started Linux( fedora) seven years ago.
Anyways, so far I can see, rpm-ostree creates and switches an entirely new branch(Using git checkout?) whenever I install a new package into the system. Though I wished to have new commits instead of branches of a single deployment (on updates and new additions) with beta and rawhide branches(whenever available) so whenever something get’s wrong I can easily roll back to its previous state and sometimes
git reset --hard too. Using
rpm-ostree ex livefs is experimental but I’m using it because it’s extremely important. When I first install it, I got tired of rebooting.
Anyway, I have few questions.
- How can I delete Mozilla Firefox? I don’t use Firefox and it’s my own personal opinion that I consider it as “linux bloatware” that comes pre-installed with every distributions I have heard of. There are lot of reasons why I call that but I don’t want to elaborate. Open source should be a matter of choice.
- How can I enable automatic updates to my current deployment which is workstation desktop? The advantage of container/git based updates means anyone can roll back. I can’t find anything about it in man pages of rpm-ostree
