Installing Fedora Silverblue

Fedora Silverblue can be installed in the same way as Fedora Workstation, and the official Fedora installation guide can be followed for your Fedora version. See the Fedora documentation site for more details.

Antes de você começar

Assim como acontece com a instalação de qualquer novo sistema operacional, é importante fazer backup de todos os dados que deseja salvar antes de iniciar e ter uma compreensão clara das consequências do que está fazendo.

Fedora Silverblue is intended to provide the full range of capabilities that you would expect from an installation of Fedora Workstation. However, there are some differences in terms of which applications can be installed, and how the operating system environment works.

It is therefore recommended that you read this user guide before deciding to install Fedora Silverblue. It is also recommended that you determine whether Fedora Silverblue meets the specific needs or requirements that you might have. If you are uncertain about this, Fedora Silverblue can also be tested in a virtual machine prior to installation.

Limitações conhecidas

Fedora Silverblue does not provide a fully functional experience for dual booting or manual partitioning.

It is possible to make Fedora Silverblue work for both dual boot and manual partitioning, and some guidance is provided on manual partitioning below. However, there are hazards involved in both cases, and you should only attempt to use these features if you have done the necessary research, and are confident that you can overcome any issues that you might encounter.

Getting Fedora Silverblue

If you are using Fedora Media Writer, Fedora Silverblue should be listed as a download option. However, if it isn’t, or if you want to download it manually, an install image can be downloaded from the main Fedora Silverblue website.

Once you have got your copy of Fedora Silverblue, it can be installed in the usual manner. We hope that you love it!

Particionamento manual

As described above, there are known issues with manual partitioning on Fedora Silverblue, and it should be used with caution. The following notes are intended as hints for those attempting it, and should not be treated as recommended practice. Automatic partitioning is recommended.

With Fedora Silverblue, only certain mounts can be manually specified as partitions. These include:

  • /boot

  • /var

  • Subdiretórios sob /var, incluindo:

    • /var/home (Fedora Silverblue has a symlink from /home to /var/home)

    • /var/log

    • /var/containers

  • O sistema de arquivos raiz: /

The Fedora installer is not aware of these restrictions and will accept custom partitions without error, even if they are incompatible with Fedora Silverblue.

Manual partitioning on Fedora Silverblue can be done with Btrfs, LVM, as well as standard partitions or an xfs filesystem.
