Fedora 23 Screencast and Screenshots
Fedora 23 Screencast and Screenshots
Its (approximately) Halloween, so you know what that means new Fedora! The Fedora 23 release is here, and its better than ever before. Were pleased to bring you the latest incarnations of the three main Fedora editions Fedora Workstation, Fedora Cloud, and Fedora Server, each built with love by the Fedora community to custom-fit your needs in different areas. Fedora 23 is also available in alternate desktop Spins, curated software Labs, and special images for the ARM processor architecture.
If thats all you need to hear, download from https://getfedora.org/, or if you already use Fedora, follow the simple upgrade steps. Otherwise, read on for details.
If youre a software developer, laptop or home user, hobbyist, enthusiast, or student, Fedora Workstation is perfect for you. Fedora Workstation includes the newest release of the GNOME desktop, which makes your everyday computing simple, polished, and pleasant. Experience the sleek interface and powerful tools for yourself download Fedora Workstation now!
Fedora Server makes service management simple with RoleKit, a programmatic interface for quick deployment, and Cockpit, a remote web GUI. Now in Fedora Server 23, you can manage Kubernetes clusters from the Cockpit Admin Console, or launch a FreeIPA domain controller from a kickstart file. Get Fedora Server this morning and have an identity management solution in place by lunchtime.
Build scale-out computing with Fedora Cloud. The Fedora Cloud Base image provides a minimal OS platform which can be downloaded for use in OpenStack, or launched directly into EC2. Fedora Atomic Host takes things in a more radical direction, providing a specialized system for running Docker containers and Atomic Apps. Now with Fedora 23, Fedora Atomic Host will be updated on a two-week cycle to keep at the edge of emerging technology. Download or launch a Fedora Cloud image for your chosen cloud provider, or as a Vagrant box for local development.
Spins, Labs, and ARM
Fedora Spins are alternative desktops for Fedora that provide a different experience than the standard Fedora Workstation edition. For instance, the Fedora KDE and Fedora Xfce spins provide popular alternatives to GNOME for Fedora users who enjoy the KDE or Xfce experience. Fedora 23 also introduces a Cinnamon spin, which provides a traditional desktop layout with the modern GNOME 3 shell. Get Fedora 23 Spins.
Fedora Labs are curated collections of software maintained by members of the Fedora Community where you can find updated live media focused on Games, Design, Robotics, and more. These may be installed on their own or as add-ons to existing Fedora installations. Get Fedora 23 Labs.
We provide a version of the Fedora operating system tailored for running in on ARM-based systems, previously mixed into the Spins page but now with a dedicated download page.
Fedora just keeps getting better and better and their upgrading procedure using dnf is just about perfect. This is the third iteration that I have up-graded to and it is basically flawless. If you want a bleeding edge OS, then Fedora 23 is one of the best (along with Arch Linux with its running upgrades).
Before you do anything, you will want to make sure you have the latest packages for Fedora 22 before beginning the upgrade process. Additionally, make sure you back up your system before proceeding. One popular tool available in Fedora for this purpose is deja-dup. To upgrade your system, use the Software application or enter the following command in a terminal:
sudo dnf upgrade
2. Install the DNF plugin
Next, open a terminal and type the following command to install the plugin:
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
3. Start the update with DNF
Now that your system is up-to-date, backed up, and you have the DNF plugin installed, you can begin the upgrade by using the following command in a terminal:
This command will begin downloading all of the upgrades for your machine locally to prepare for the upgrade. Adding the best flag will cancel the upgrade if an upgraded package cannot be upgraded because of a dependency issue. While it isnt required, it is a good idea to check for any issues before proceeding. Excluding the best flag will leave any packages with problems out when upgrading.
4. Reboot and upgrade
Once the previous command finishes downloading all of the upgrades, your system will be ready for rebooting. To boot your system into the upgrade process, type the following command in a terminal:
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
Your system will restart after this. In past releases, fedup would create a new option on the kernel selection / boot screen. With the new dnf-plugin-system-upgrade package, your system reboots into the current kernel installed for Fedora 22; this is normal. Shortly after the kernel selection screen, your system begins the upgrade process.
Now might be a good time for a coffee break! Once it finishes, your system will restart and youll be able to log in to your newly upgraded Fedora 23 Workstation.
