Manifests for rpm-ostree based Fedora variants

This is the configuration needed to create rpm-ostree based variants of Fedora. Each variant is described in a YAML treefile which is then used by rpm-ostree to compose an ostree commit with the package requested.

In the Fedora infrastructure, this happens via pungi with Lorax (templates).

Fedora Silverblue

Fedora Kinoite


Instructions to perform a local build of Silverblue:

# Clone the config
git clone && cd workstation-ostree-config

# Prepare repo & cache
mkdir -p repo cache && ostree --repo=repo init --mode=archive

# Build (compose) the variant of your choice
sudo rpm-ostree compose tree --repo=repo --cachedir=cache fedora-silverblue.yaml

# Update summary file
ostree summary --repo=repo --update


Instructions to test the resulting build:

  • First, serve the ostree repo using an HTTP server.
  • Then, on an already installed Silverblue system:
# Add an ostree remote
sudo ostree remote add testremote http://<IP_ADDRESS>/repo

# Pin the currently deployed (and probably working) version
sudo ostree admin pin 0

# List refs from variant remote
sudo ostree remote refs testremote

# Switch to your variant
sudo rpm-ostree rebase testremote:fedora/35/x86_64/silverblue
