          Just upgraded my system, go the new KDE version, here are my initial thoughts :
          >my bottom panel is gone and my top one is now floating
          >overview is now really sluggish
          >krunner displays empty space when searching for things
          >I cannot add my nextcloud account due to a crash
          >CalDAV sync still doesn't work
          >X11 session is gone
          >gestures still aren't customizable
          >xwayland video bridge still doesn't work
          I added the X11 session back, and the overview effect only showed a black screen.
          I went back to 39 and will stay on it until plasma 6's wayland issues are fixed, I had issues on both intel and radeon graphics. Plasma 5.27 is in a much better state than 6.0.x.
          Fedora 40 is not a good release as far as KDE is concerned. It's still better than KDE Neon though.

            40 KDE with wayland is working flawlessly for me. Amd cpu and gpu.

            It works well under Wayland, like 5.27 did. I'm just kind of disappointed the issues It had under 5.27 weren't fixed. The big improvements that were put front and center like the overview and krunner have polish and/or performance issues.
            The X11 session saw some regressions as well, the overview doesn't work when using EGL. It's not as bad as KDE 4 was in its day, but the few issues it has are pretty glaring, coming from the much more polished state of 5.27.
            I don't think it's a hardware issue on my end, as my experience was consistent across intel and amd integrated and dedicated graphics.

            That makes a lot more sense. I've actually been doing quite a bit of research since I asked that first question, and I'm starting to realize Debian is probably one of the worst choices for using docker. Its current docker package is very, very out of date, and even pending removal (?) due to unfixed bugs. However, the testing branch has a Podman roughly on par with upstream... Ubuntu seems to be the way to go for docker, as it's slightly behind upstream in that regard. And Fedora obviously has Podman. All 3 options have the third party docker-ce repo possibility, but as I understand it, this is probably a big nono for at least Debian and Ubuntu. Not sure about Fedora

            I'm getting analysis paralyis on which to choose to learn webshittery on Linux

            Just get use whatever comes with a desktop you like, has up-to-date versions of the software you need and updates on a schedule that works for you. Fedora has editions with all major desktops, has a new release every 6 months and has fairly new packages without compromising stability, it's a good choice.

      Neither, if you want X11. XFCE or staying on 39 would probably be the best while Wayland gets its shit together

        All of these apply to multiple other distros, such as Arch.

        Not sure what the security tag thing you mentioned means, but since Fedora was the only major distro vulnerable to the xz exploit, I think that's a black mark in their security record.

            That's not the same. You don't know what those updates are for. In fedora you can do
            dnf upgrade --security
            and it will only pull in packages that were updated to fix security vulnerabilities. You can go further and specify the security level like Critical or Important.

      Arch would be a good alternative but the whole "check for manual intervention on updates" thing I can't be bothered with. It updates so often im not going to fricking arch.com or whatever and sifting through the patch notes each time in case I get fricked. In fact it's likely I'd read them, not understand a thing, get fricked anyway lol.

      An immutable distro based on arch would be very interesting to me. Something that assumes it will frick up at some point but it's okay there will be an image for me to go back to 🙂 where it works again! A bit like Fedora Atomic.

      Fedora tries out features years before they become mainstream and get adopted by most distros. Also, is a distro that offers a 100% open source default, yes, legal shenanigans may affect it but being realistic, sooner or later software regulation may get more strict in some countries, so better have Fedora and not reinvent the wheel.

    Distros like Mint claim to be free of snap's bullshit, but you're either going to use the flatpak or "just use the version from 5+ years ago bro"
    Both flatpak and snap suck ass due to simple software like Audacity taking over 700MB.
    Debian is too dated, and not suited for desktop use.

            Suspend is broken on newer laptops, you lose a lot more battery as most components are powered when the system is suspended, while only RAM was kept on when s3 sleep was the standard.
            With hibernation you can quickly restore system state without the power draw of modern suspend.

            [...]
            [...]
            [...]
            What are v2/v3/v4 packages?

            Packages compiled to make use of "modern" instructions like AVX or SSE4.2, things like python or databases show some pretty decent gains. Right now everything basically targets the same instructions the Athlon 64 had in 2003.

            Plasma 6 status?

            Mostly fine. Krunner is a bit faster, the Qt6 apps look nicer, the new overview is a lot more usable (closer to GNOME's), but it is a bit choppier. Honestly you're not missing much if you stay on 39, plasma 5.27 is in a very good state and the biggest new feature, HDR, isn't usable yet.

      >mostly ironed out
      The redone effects like the overview still exhibit worse performance than they did on Plasma 5.27. The nextcloud and CalDAV integrations are still boroken while they work flawlessly on gnome. Plasma 6 is a step back in some key areas. Say what you will about GNOME, but as slow as it is to adopt new features, it is stable and didn't suffer as many regressions from 45 to 46 as Plasma did from 5.27 to 6.

      Suse wins again, why can't the other distros do this already? I'll switch to whatever distro can provide v4 officially first.

    Is Fedora good for web dev? I've recently switched to Debian and will be doing some web dev shit in the near future. I'm concerned that Debian's node package is pretty old, even in Debian testing.
    Is Fedora better for this usecase, or is Debian with nvm just as good? Also, how much telemetry does Fedora have?

      Fedora's Atomic Images are particularly good for any Dev because you can just install the latest packages inside of distrobox while keeping your base system clean.

      Fairly irrelevant, although it'll teach you about selinux early on.
      >concerned that Debian's node package is pretty old, even in Debian testing.
      Use nvm inside a container, that's the industrial and practical standard for any webdev these days.
      >Is Fedora better for this usecase, or is Debian with nvm just as good?
      Again, fairly irrelevant, use containers. Fedora comes with a clean default setup for podman, so that be your first choice. Aforementioned distrobox is a wrapper around that.
      >Also, how much telemetry does Fedora have?
      Currently none. There are some proposed changes in the room for some opt-out info, but the community wasn't all so happy about it yet. So none are to be expected soon.

        Thank you for the detailed response. I'm fairly new to Linux and haven't experimented much with containers yet.
        When you say
        >>Is Fedora better for this usecase, or is Debian with nvm just as good?
        >Again, fairly irrelevant, use containers. Fedora comes with a clean default setup for podman, so that be your first choice. Aforementioned distrobox is a wrapper around that.
        Could something like this be done with docker as well? I guess I'm a bit confused on how to set up and begin using the container.
        I assume, for example, on a Debian 12 machine you could set up docker and then start using one of these node images (preferrably Debian 2 based): https://hub.docker.com/_/node
        And then install nvm and use it as expected. Is that the correct workflow?

        • 2 months ago

          Yes, you can use docker on debian as well. Podman is just a more modern version of docker and standard on all dnf based distros. They both use the same images, if that's causing confusion. I'm too lazy to write out all the details on this, so go check out some youtube tutorial. In general the ladder of decision between docker and podman goes like this:
          >what the existing project uses
          >what you're already used to
          >podman
          After pulling a dedicated image like hub.docker.com/_/node, you dont need to install node anymore, it's already in there. Write your project and ramp it up.

            That makes a lot more sense. I've actually been doing quite a bit of research since I asked that first question, and I'm starting to realize Debian is probably one of the worst choices for using docker. Its current docker package is very, very out of date, and even pending removal (?) due to unfixed bugs. However, the testing branch has a Podman roughly on par with upstream... Ubuntu seems to be the way to go for docker, as it's slightly behind upstream in that regard. And Fedora obviously has Podman. All 3 options have the third party docker-ce repo possibility, but as I understand it, this is probably a big nono for at least Debian and Ubuntu. Not sure about Fedora

            Welcome to Debian.
            Use Fedora if you want to be closer to upstream without going full Arch, and want a major update every 6 months.
            Use Ubuntu LTS or Rocky Linux if you want to simulate an enterprise production environment, and want a major update every 2 years.

    I installed fedora 40 with plasma 6 on my PC, this is what happened.

    This sole event is leading me to install Windows 10 LTSC on both my main PC and my steam deck.

    I've just had it with linux. I'm sick of shit just messing up and not working. It's bullshit.

    Bye bye linux, won't miss you, at all.

    Also I tried gnome on fedora 40. Slow as shit, literally takes 1.5 seconds to open the file manager lul.

            I ran win10 LTSC on my deck for a while. The install process was gruelling, the whole experience sub-optimal. It mostly worked, but I was pretty quick to re-install SteamOS. Windows without a keyboard/mouse or up-to-date GPU drivers just isn't a good experience, it's not worth it.

    Speaking about Fedora, what's this project and how is exactly related to it?
    https://github.com/ublue-os/bluefin/tree/main
    Does this allow you to build a custom Silverblue ISO? That would be handy, i don't like using Flatpak for MPV and not sure about how this toolbox thing interacts with media and codecs

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      It's just a silverblue image with additonal packages, including the codecs and whatnot you'd get from RPM fusion. You can use its scripts to create your own image.
      Toolbox is just a wrapper around podman. It's less versatile than- distrobox if you intend to run GUI programs or don't want to litter your home directory.

      Legitimate question, why use Fedora? I mean what actual benefits does Fedora offer compared to other distros? I've never used it because it just seems pointless to me.

      It updates more reliably than arch in my experience, without being that far behind. It doesn't try to force snaps or whatever onto you, doesn't try to sell you a subscription. It provides sane defaults for all the desktops it supports. Its just a reasonably new, stable distribution.
      Having to add a third party repo to get codecs and fully functional ffmpeg and whatnot is a pain in the ass though, it can create conflicts with the default repo.

    Alright, can anyone tell me why they're still having btrfs as default without taking advantage of it in the setup process?
    openSUSE had snapshots enabled for centuries now. What's keeping Fedora from setting this up automatically without the user having to do all that shit? What is really the point of btrfs without using snapshots?

    • 2 months ago

      >without taking advantage of it in the setup process
      By default, / and /home are put on two separate subvolumes, zstd compression is enabled as well. Snapshots are a great feature, but not the sole reason to use btrfs, CoW behaviour, subvolumes and transparent compression are very appealing as well.

          I don't know about how BTRFS snapshots handle upgrading from one release to another. I run the atomic KDE version, so if an update has some issues, I can just reboot on the previous system image. Upgrading to 40 and rolling back to 39 just worked.

            >printer
            Printing over the network just works with my HP and lexmark printers. If your printer is connected directly through USB, You should be able to overlay any necessary drivers
            >ollama
            ROCm, CUDA, oneAPI and all the stuff that relies on it works really well within a container. I do all my AI/ML stuff in a distrobox container.
            >codecs
            My apps are either flatpaks or running in containers, so codecs really aren't an issue on my base system. Distrobox makes running GUI apps in containers pretty seamless. For CLI stuff, I have separate profiles for each of my containers in konsole.
            >plasma scripts
            I had no issues adding Krohnkite as a KWin script to get dynamic tyling. Other scripts should work similarly well.
            If you're thinking with containers, an immutable system really doesn't hold you back.

            Guess the only true way to be sure is spinning up a Virtual machine and try reproduce my workflow to figure out pain points to solve. The one thing that would've to iron out first is the mpv integration. Libvirt just works everywhere and is even mentioned on Silverblue docs. I don't use my printer often enough that i can't just use a LiveUSB or Virtual Machine to deal with that. If you say Kwin scripts work fine then it shouldn't be hard to set up. Or maybe i can just build my own OCI image with one of the Blue OS base scripts.
