Manifests for Fedora Atomic Desktops variants

This is the configuration needed to create rpm-ostree based, desktop variants of Fedora, also known as Fedora Atomic Desktops.

This repo is managed by the Fedora Atomic Desktops SIG.

The currently official Fedora Atomic Desktop variants are:

  • Fedora Silverblue
  • Fedora Kinoite
  • Fedora Sway Atomic
  • Fedora Budgie Atomic

Reach out to the SIG if you are interested in creating and maintaining a new Atomic variant.

Repository content

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, composes are made via pungi with the configuration from:

Installer ISOs are built using Lorax and additional templates: pagure.io/fedora-lorax-templates.

Website

The sources for the Silverblue, Kinoite, Sway Atomic and Budgie Atomic websites are in gitlab.com/fedora/fedora-websites-3.0.

Issue trackers

Issues common to all Fedora Atomic Desktops are tracked in gitlab.com/fedora/ostree/sig.

Desktop specific issues should be filed in their respective issue trackers:

Documentation

The documentation for Fedora Atomic variants is currently duplicated for each variant at Atomic Desktops.

There are plans to unify the documentation: ostree/sig#10

Building

All commonly used commands are listed as recipes in the justfile (see Just).

Example to do a local build of Fedora Silverblue:

# Clone the config
$ git clone https://pagure.io/workstation-ostree-config && cd workstation-ostree-config

# Build the classic ostree commits (currently the default in Fedora)
$ just compose-legacy variant=silverblue

# Or build the new ostree native container (not default yet, still in development)
$ just compose-image variant=silverblue

Testing

Instructions to test the resulting build for classic ostree commits:

simple-http-server --index --ip 192.168.122.1 --port 8000
  • Then, on an already installed Silverblue system:
# Add an ostree remote
sudo ostree remote add testremote http://192.168.122.1:8000/repo --no-gpg-verify

# 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/rawhide/x86_64/silverblue

# Reboot and test!

Instructions to test the resulting build for ostree native containers:

  • Push the OCI archive to a container registry
  • Rebase to it:
$ rpm-ostree rebase ostree-unverified-image:registry:<oci image>

See URL format for ostree native containers for details.

Branching instructions for new Fedora releases

Follow those steps during the Fedora branch process in Fedora:

Fedora Ansible

Make a PR similar to ansible#1318 in fedora-infra/ansible.

On Rawhide / main branch

sed -i "s/41/42/g" *.repo comps-sync.py
sed -i "s/releasever: 41/releasever: 42/" fedora-common-ostree.yaml
sed -i "s/# - fedora-41/# - fedora-42/" fedora-*.yaml
mv fedora-41.repo fedora-42.repo
mv fedora-41-updates.repo fedora-42-updates.repo
sed -i "s/42/42/g" README.md
sed -i "s/41/42/g" README.md

On the new branch (f41)

rm fedora-rawhide.repo
sed -i "/- fedora-rawhide/d" fedora-*.yaml
sed -i "s/# - fedora-41/- fedora-41/" fedora-*.yaml
sed -i "s/ref: fedora\/rawhide/ref: fedora\/41/" fedora-*.yaml
