    Phoronix: Fedora 37 Now Available With GNOME 43 Desktop, Official Raspberry Pi 4 Support

    After some release setbacks -- most recently by that OpenSSL security vulnerability -- Fedora 37 is now officially released...

    I use it since ~4 weeks. I didn't notice any drawbacks except one nautilus bug with context menu, so not bad release IMO. It's nice upgrade from Fedora 36.

        I'm also running it (since early beta). I like the cutting edge packages, even mpv-0.35 is already waiting in updates-testing.


        My current problems are:
        - Teams in Chrome sometimes shift the video out of the screen! Could be an amd driver bug, chrome bug, or something related to a fedora package.
        Not easily reproductible

        - in previous fedora version i could just do a "yum update" in graphical mode, it worked. Yes i do this by hand.
        Since F36 or F37, a yum update often resets my wayland session+reloggin. Loosing the last "rpm script installations",
        like the mkinitrd of the kernel installs. yum-complete-transaction seems to be gone.

        -a couple of pipewire bugs because of my constant connect/disconnect/changing sound output. I was in beta when it happened, this could already been fixed.


        For the rest, it's really fine!

          I wish they would have kept armv7 for a little longer

            my biggest nautilus gripe is the lack of tree view. hopefully it comes back soon, progress seems to be stopped: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nauti...e_requests/817

            Fedora has had this issue for several releases, at least for me. I think it's only when the ibus package is updated.

            Do you mean dnf5? you can get the test version here: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/co...dnf5-unstable/ Not much to write home about. uses different cache directory, which I think is unnecessary and unfortunate.

              AFAIK the previous layout had a problem where DNF and packagekit consumers such as Gnome-Software would use different layouts so there was duplication of data. Chages were made to stop this. Not sure if that is what you are referring to.

                  Been running Kinoite (the KDE spin) for a while, would love a Sway option though. An immutable base OS image has its quirks but is also quite refreshing. I'm glad that RH and SUSE (for their MicroOS) are exploring the future of desktop Linux with these attempts

                    Not really an exclusive Fedora post, but I picked up this "was high end five+ years ago" laptop at work, had just the ergonomics I wanted for a "test" machine. Installed Fedora 37 beta, but then gave Arch a run with the "archinstall" script, installing the base "gnome" package while at it.

                    All I can say is that Gnome has gotten a lot better since when I last gave it a go. Went from amateur looking (just the sum-total of all the (lacking) details) to a lot more polished. I am actually quite liking this.

                    Whether I stick to the Arch install (pros being system-boot over Grub, and also Btrfs with all mounts as Btrfs subvolumes, I think a little cleaner installation) or do a clean Fedora 37 install (I wan't to use this for some development work, and would be some advantages to Fedora for this), we will see.

                    But for now just wanted to give a kudos to the positve changes I have seen in Gnome since my last go around.
