Kinoite Nightly images with Plasma 6
Update: We’ve merged KDE 6 / Plasma 6 packages to Rawhide so Kinoite Nightly builds will be paused again. You can follow the progress in Kinoite via the Rawhide container images or the classic ostree refs.
How to switch back to Rawhide:
Thanks to the packaging efforts of the members of the KDE SIG (especially Alessandro Astone, Justin Zobel and Steve Cossette), we now have enough updated packages in Fedora to create Fedora Kinoite nightly images with KDE Plasma 6.
Pre-release software notice
KDE Plasma 6 is currently in Alpha and those images are based on Fedora Rawhide, which is the development stream of Fedora and may include bugs or breaking changes at any time.
So this should be obvious but in case it needs to be said: This is pre-release software that may include major bugs. Only use this on systems where you are confident you will be able to rollback and have backups of your collection of favorite cat pictures. You’ve been warned!
How to try it out
We currently do not have installation ISOs or pre-installed images available. To try it, you can follow those steps:
1. Install Fedora Kinoite 39.
2. Update to the latest version and reboot:
3. Pin your current deployment to make sure that you will be able to rollback if something fails:
4. Switch to the Fedora Kinoite Nightly Plasma 6 image:
5. Test and report bugs!
How do I test for regressions / bisect?
You can find all tags for those images at quay.io/fedora-ostree-desktops/kinoite-nightly.
