    Phoronix: Fedora 31 Won't Add An Official POWER Desktop Spin

    While Fedora recently began spinning workstation/live images for POWER (PPC64LE) at least as a work-in-progress, it won't be made a formal feature of the upcoming Fedora 31...

      Do the Server and Workstation versions of Fedora use the same kernel build?

          This does not sound too surprising, adding this type of support has it's hurdles. I hope they will catch-up soon. For now users can run and test against Rawhide I guess.

            Just out of curiosity why did they reject it?

              Why? You CAN install desktop-related packages manually and edit the config files if and where needed..

                Not everyone wants to do that and they just want an easy-to-use GUI installer paired with a known tested desktop. Essentially Fedora's version of Arch vs Manjaro.

                  I get it, yes. But it's fairly minor problem to solve for end-user, compared to not having packages at all or having to build them by themselves, including potential porting issues rising from having different CPU arch..
                  Compared to that, just having to install and configure readily available packages is really no real problem. Learning experience if anything..

                    Here's the full log (starting 15:27:39): https://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fe...15.00.log.html

                    Basically Fedora 31 is almost done, too late for such a large change. That said, the images are built already, they're just too late to be announced as an official Fedora 31 release.
