Fedora 31: The next release of Fedora will be released in the coming hours, as ISOs are not yet available in the official repositories for the public.
However, we installed the distribution shortly before its release. The ISO we used was one snapshot from version dev. But it's not the previous beta.
This is an image that is very close to the stable version, though it doesn't seem to be that far. The release date of this release as you see in the picture below is 2019-Oct-25 02: 11.
So far we have not encountered any particular problem.
H Fedora releases a new version approximately every 6 months. Each release is supported with updates for a total of 13 months. Distribution is for those who want a stable system that uses the latest software and the latest technologies.
If you are a new Fedora user, just follow the guide below. We will start with the installation of the distribution and proceed with some basic settings.
After booting from the USB / DVD installer and launching the Anaconda installer you will see the following screen in which you should select the installation language.
We proceeded with English and the time zone option automatically loads on the next screen.
You will then need to select the disk where the distribution will be installed
We need to select / for the root but also a partition for the boot loader installation. In my case I chose sda1 in / boot / efi.
If you proceed, the installer will tell you that he / she will format /
So when you get to the screen below, you only need one click to start the installation.
Wait for it to finish and restart your system.
If your system has other operating systems like mine, you should go to the operating system you have set to boot. In my case I have set the Manjaro distribution because the boot screen "remembers" I was more functional before I restarted the system.
Make an update to the grub to add the new distribution to the boot menu:
When your new system starts up, a screen will appear to allow you to add a user.
Enter your name, enter a code, and proceed until you see the home screen.
Fedora 31 Settings
First we need to change the root password.
sudo passwd root
Enter the sudo user password, and type in a root password twice.
Change host name
hostnamectl set-hostname --static "secnews"
Install RPM fusion repos
sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E% fedora) .noarch.rpm
sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E% fedora) .noarch.rpm
Install applications (add the name of the application you want)
dnf install vlc filezilla qbittorrent pinta geany gimp
The distribution comes with Gnome's default desktop environment, so you'll probably need the tweak tool.
dnf install gnome-tweak-tool
I personally installed KDE Plasma DE.
dnf -y group install “KDE Plasma Workspaces”
After installing, I added a swapfile (yes fedora supports the feature) for better RAM performance.
Below are the terminal commands. In case you are interested, use them in the order listed:
sudo fallocate -l 4G / swapfile sudo chmod 600 / swapfile sudo mkswap / swapfile sudo swapon / swapfile
After the above commands that will create a swapfile on your system, we will interfere with fstab to load it automatically after every reboot. We will open the fstab with the nano application
sudo nano / etc / fstab
and we will add the following line at the end of fstab
/ swapfile swap sw sw sw 0 0
