So, how does dnf works?
I tried the live image of fedora 28 KDE spin yesterday, and when I tried to 'sudo dnf install simplescreenrecorder' it gave a message saying that it was gonna download 85MB of dependencies, and that installed they would use ~340MB of space. I couldn't even install it because there was no space. Fuck m8's, 340MB for simplescreenrecorder? And I remember seeing people on /g/ shiting on apt because it installed recommended packages by default.

Not sure if I just have all those dependencies already installed, but that's what I get.

Thats probably why my dudes. Qt isnt something that usually comes on a Gnome DE live image

But the other anon used the KDE spin

Sorry, looks like I can't read. I dare say the same thing applies, a live disc is pretty light with installed libraries.

Also, neofetch installed like 15MB of dependencies. I was shocked and chagrined.

Read again.
I was trying the KDE spin. I refuse to use that gnome shit.

Yeah, maybe is that.
But neofetch even installed ImageMagick.
And that's clearly not a hard dependency.

I would never use Fedora based on it's name alone.

"I found it hard to install" nice click bait retard.

dnf installs weak dependencies by default. You need to add --setopt=install_weak_deps=False to disable that behaviour.

I noticed it. As I said, I remember /g/ shilling so hard against the fact that apt installs suggested dependencies by default that I thought it was the only package manager to do that. Dnf install even more stuff than apt.
I like fedora's release schedule, maybe I'll try it more seriously (AKA not only on a live session) on the future.

It's "bleeding edge", therefore it's high maintenance, especially when they go and update shit that worked into effective unusefulness.

Still got a fuckload of the same trail to pick up from yum, last time I tried it.

>> No.66136000

I used to run Fedora before switching to Arch due to more up-to-date graphics drivers (before amdgpu was a thing). Is stability an issue with Tumbleweed? I've been tempted to give it a try.

>> No.66136028

Generic distro focused on being open to newcomers #295

>> No.66136098

I have been using Tumbleweed for at least 2 weeks and no problems at all (some minor bug that happened too in Manjaro with compton, but easily solved).

So far, if you google about Tumbleweed most people think is the most stable rolling release distro out there. Even more stable than Manjaro.

Some cons: you will need to install Packman repo for multimedia and you will need to use the opensource drivers for your graphic cards because each kernel update will break them (but I guess you already know that if you are using Arch).

I have to agree that my only experience with a rolling release distro was Manjaro and Solus and I used both no more than one month.

tl;dr: stable as fuck but you will need to add a repo for multimedia. Also I am using it with ext4, so no snapper for me.

I won't try to be exhaustive but in general it plays out like

Right now, I have Kubuntu installed on my laptop, but I do like the short release cycle of Fedora (I don't need all stability in the world for 2 years old programs).
I want to encrypt my HD, I know it's possible with Fedora, but I have two questions:
1) Does it slows my boot time? I'm on a SSD. I ask this because there's no slow down on Kubuntu, but when I tried on Manjaro I could notice that it took quite more time to boot.
2) Does the screen that asks for the encryption password looks good, like on (K)Ubuntu? I know it sounds autistic, but I really want to know (not a deciding factor).
