@itisthec
i can see what i can do - but this isn't auto-mounting media, this is nfs auto-mounting application software to local network machines (single central configured software mounted out to all the machines with separate local logging), auto-mounted media does go into /media
but this is new with this release? so it wouldn't have been an issue before (just trying to understand cause/effect)
oh, and thanks for the quick reply and background, very much appreciated. Really love the fedberry releases, thanks for that too!
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
@itisthec yes, these are new changes I made when working on Fedberry 28 packages and its all been pushed to Fedberry 27 as well, so no it wouldn't have been as issue before.

@markand
hello all
is there a guide to create custom version (as image disk) of fedberry using kickstart?
for example, to add/remove some packages from the default barebone kickstart file
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @markand. You can pretty much follow the standard Fedora procedure here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM/Creating_Remixes
Of course however, use our kickstarts instead.
Go here to grab the latest kickstarts: https://github.com/fedberry/fedberry-kickstarts (master branch is for Fedberry 28)
David Demelier
@markand
okay thanks I'll do :)
fedberry running on my raspberry pi 3 !
is chronyd really required since we can have systemd-timesyncd instead?
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Fedora still defaults to chronyd at this point, so we follow suit. Not sure if/when they plan to switch.
I must admit, chronyd was/is significantly impacting on boot times with fedberry-barebone (28) last time I checked (as compared to previous Fedberry barebone releases). I like to keep boot times to around 5 sec for barebone and chronyd is currently spoiling the party!

@mavit
Hello, I notice that upstream Fedora 27 is scheduled to become end of life in just six weeks time. Are there any plans for Fedberry 28 or 29 release?
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @mavit. Yes, I have seen the Fedora 27 EOL date looming. I never did 'official' Fedberry 28 release images as I was never happy with 'downstream' RPi kernel builds from branches newer than rpi-4.14.x (BTW, I did push up some 'unofficial' Fedberry 28 snapshot images but never announced anything). Recently, kernel builds from the rpi-4.18.x branch are looking pretty good, so I am starting to work towards a Fedberry 29 release based on these. It happens to coincide quite nicely with the Fedora 29 release time frame.

hi everyone! i have a problem when update a fedberry i had this error

i need help :c
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @MarlonPindter. Do you happen to have either /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo.rpmnew or /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo.rpmnew files hanging around?
If so, then if you rename them to fedora-updates.repo & fedora.repo it should hopefully fix the problem.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
For those who may be interested, I have pushed up some Fedberry 29 development snapshot images (barebone, minimal & xfce). Barebone and minimal releases are pretty solid while the xfce image has a few minor niggles here and there which may or may not get ironed out by the time we do an official 29.1 release.
Not sure if I'll do a lxqt release yet......

@sbadux
Thanks again for your work @agrez . I was hoping for an updated release of Fedberry. I spent a lot of time to fix problems with other RPi distros (SD corruption, updates that broke the system,...) but thanks to Fedberry it's more than a year that I don't have to maintenance my RPi and I've regularly installed all the updates. It's rock solid. I love it.
I think you can focus on a single DE. Xfce is good and I think that can be the only DE
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @sbadux. Yes, I think I will just push out Xfce as the only desktop release for Fedberry 29. I spent some time this weekend finding a few bugs that will need to be fixed before I can do a LXQt spin, so this will only delay things even more.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
As far as sdcards go, I have a general rule which helps me greatly. If the SDcard costs less than the RPi, then don't use it! ;-) I find cheap sdcards are mostly a waste of time. Its amazing the performance and reliability improvements to be gained when a 'premium' sdcard is used. Cards with a 'lifetime' warranty have not failed me yet.
Although that being said, my main 2 builders have used external usb SSDs for a while now, so I don't thrash the sdcards like I used to.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
If anyone is interested, I have pushed up a vlc-3.0.5 build (based off of RPM Fusion spec file) for FedBerry (after also raiding Pi Towers for a patch which fixes mmal support). Seems to work quite well. Its in the testing repo for the moment.

second motion for Xfce
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
I can't verify if the new RPi 3A+ will work with Fedberry 29.1 (I don't own one).... If anyone happens to try it out, then please let me know.
Theoretically, support for the 3A+ should be in the latest kernel......

Coinciding nicely with the Fedora 27 EOL, I have released Fedberry 29.1. See the release notes here: https://github.com/fedberry/fedberry/releases
sbadux
@sbadux
@agrez Yes, I use only good SD Cards. For Fedberry I'm using the same SD Card I used with Raspbian and Ubuntu Mate. On MATE the SD card corrupts after 3-4 reboots or evertime there was a blackout while on Fedberry I never needed to restore the SD Card.

@itisthec
what help do you need to lxqt? also is there an upgrade process for 27.1 to 29.1 or is it reinstall?
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
Hi @itisthec. I have added some fixes already for LXQt but I will try and push these upstream to Fedora first (this may take a while), as they are not Fedberry specific issues. I haven't tested upgrading from 27.1 ----> 29.1, so I'm not sure if it works. I have only tested from 28.0 ----> 29.1 and all they upgraded smoothly.
itisthec
@itisthec
can i upgrade from 27.1 -> 28 then 28 -> 29.1?
Peter Oliver
@mavit
For what it's worth, I upgraded from 27 to 29 and it was fine.
Vaughan Agrez
@agrez
hi @itisthec. Apologies for my tardy response. Most of my installs over time have gone from f27.1-->f28 (insert a few months) then f28-->f29.1 and I haven't had any major issues. I however not done it all in one hit (and haven't had any free time to test this lately).
Thanks @mavit for your input here. I have been wondering if anyone had tried this yet. Usually if there were issues I would have heard about it by now, so I guess the upgrade process is working fairly smoothly at present.
sbadux
@sbadux
@agrez @mavit can you please tell me how to update from 27 to 29? I would like to update but I don't know how to do it
Peter Oliver
@mavit
I used the standard Fedora upgrade procedure, described https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DNF_system_upgrade
and summarised at

@sbadux
Thanks a lot @mavit I'm starting the update now :)
