I borked my Linux install so I was interested in trying out Fedora Silverblue as a more immutable operating system that I’m less likely to mess up. I’m starting this thread to collect my thoughts as I try and figure out how to make Silverblue usable on the Framework Laptop and to see if anyone else in the wilderness is doing this.
- Follow most of the notes on the Fedora wiki in this forum. Remember that out-of-the-box, your installation will have issues including no WiFi support. Plug in ethernet, run a full system upgrade with
rpm-ostree upgradeand once you’re on the latest Silverblue, WiFi will work.
So far these are issues I’m experiencing:
- Cannot add fingerprints to login to GNOME through the fingerprint reader.
- The workaround to save battery life by enabling deep sleep doesn’t work.
- Installing Flatpak apps that use the camera like ‘Cheese’ do not work.
