Perguntas frequentes (FAQ)
We chose the name Team Silverblue to refer to the overall project. Fedora Silverblue will be used for the OS that we are producing, but calling it Silverblue in its short version is fine as well.
Our favorite choice for a project name was Silverleaf, but that sadly did not work out. We just couldn’t quite let go of the leaf. You could also say that Silverblue is a new leaf on Fedora’s OSTree. 😀
GNOME OS was a codename that was used by the upstream GNOME project for a while to refer to the idea of designing the entire desktop user experience. By contrast, Silverblue is an effort inside the Fedora project, and will be built with existing Fedora technologies. However, the two efforts do share a desire to deliver a user experience that is polished and coherent.
Firefox is included in the OS image for now (see issue#288 for progress on moving to Flatpak by default). Until that changes, getting it to play videos works the same way as it does for the regular Fedora Workstation: find a package with the needed codecs, and install it. The one difference is that you use
rpm-ostree install instead of
dnf install. An alternative solution is to install Firefox from Flathub.
/etc is not part of the immutable OS image, so you can just copy files into
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections (or let NetworkManager store them there when you recreate your connections). Certificates in
/etc/pki need to be handled similarly.
You can install most IDE directly in a toolbox where you can also install all the developments tools from the Fedora repositories. To be able to launch them directly from menus, you can copy the
.desktop file for the IDE from the toolbox to your home directory in
~/.local/share/applications/. You should then update the
Exec line in the
.desktop file to prepend
toolbox run to start it from the toolbox. You can also use the IDEs packaged as Flatpaks from Flathub.
Se você quiser comparar a implantação inicializada com a implantação pendente (ou reverter implantação), basta executar:
$ rpm-ostree db diff
Você também pode ver o changelog do RPM adicionando a opção
rpm-ostree db diff -c
Se você quiser ver quais pacotes foram atualizados entre dois commits específicos:
descubra quais dois commits você deseja comparar executando:
$ ostree log <ref>
agora você pode comparar os dois commits executando:
$ rpm-ostree db diff <commit x> <commit y>
Você pode simplesmente usar:
$ rpm -q <pacote>
At this point in time, there is no
rpm package search function built into
rpm-ostree. However, you can use
toolbox with the following command:
$ toolbox run dnf search <pacote>
|The assumption is that you have already created a toolbox matching the version of your Fedora Silverblue installation.|
Se, por qualquer motivo, você precisar fazer o downgrade do kernel, pode fazer isso seguindo estas etapas:
Para a versão que você precisa fazer o downgrade, faça o download de
Instale os pacotes baixados na etapa anterior executando:
$ rpm-ostree override replace <kernel> <kernel-core> <kernel-modules> <kernel-modules-extra>
Reinicialize o sistema para aplicar as alterações.
How can I upgrade my system to the next major version (for instance: rawhide or an upcoming Fedora release branch), while keeping my current deployment?
OSTree permite que você fixe implantações (a fixação garante que a implantação de sua escolha seja mantida e não descartada).
Supondo que você deseja manter sua implantação padrão, emita o seguinte comando:
$ sudo ostree admin pin 0
0`aqui se refere à primeira implantação listada por `rpm-ostree status
Verifique se você fixou sua implantação preferida, executando:
$ rpm-ostree status
After the deployment is pinned, you can upgrade your system by using the instructions found here.
When you have completed rebasing, reboot the system. The GRUB menu will now present you with both: the previous deployment major version entry (e.g.: "Fedora 37.YYYYMMDD.n") and the new deployment major version entry (e.g.: "Fedora 38.YYYYMMDD.n").
No momento, não é possível nomear implantações (fixadas) e suas entradas de menu GRUB associadas.
