Fuck Arch. Fedora is running so smoothly without me having to set up anything that can easily fucking automated because "muh I know tech cause I copy pasted from a guide" secret club.

Fuck you for recommending Arch the only thing it's good for is if you have 1GiB of ram

Hi I am an Archfag myself and wanted to ask, is there a way in fedora to install any software easily through the command line like with Yaourt for example, I am just too lazy to deal with repositories
>>

>arch users are advanced linux experts
>>
>>59485836
are you asking what package manager fedora uses? if so its yum
>>
I have been using Fedora for about a year and I don't think I would recommend it. At first I broke it when I did an update with dnf, it crashes Xorg in the middle of the update. Apparently you have to use the update feature which restarts your computer and applies the updates, this is the preferred safe method but it is a pain to have to reboot. I've had issues where sometimes that doesn't work.

Welcome. Fedora is literally best "just linux" this days. No proprietary botnet binaries "with licensing issues" out of the box, but there is rpmfusion if you need it.
Every software in repos is compiled with minimal modifications from upstream so you get exactly what developers wanted you to get.
Also fedora is so flexible when it comes to stability thing, you can use well-tested aka "ancient" packages from the main release, or enable @updates to get middle-ground, or even enable rawhide mirror to recieve fresh unstable daily builds using fucking stupid and broken dnf package manager.
Perfection: The distro. Glad to see you here.

as long as you don't need nonfree software, Fedora is probably the most well put together distro out of the box.

Sorry for being so retarded, can you explain to me in a way that a retard can understand how my KDE Plasma uses less RAM than gnomeshit while having vastly more features and better compositing performance? Is it because Qt is so vastly superior to Gtk? I really don't know.

I know gnome has way more theme/icon pack development going on than Plasma, so that's a point in it's favor of course. Although it could just be that Plasma actually has a modern and stylish UI out of the box, instead of the ancient and blindingly disgusting utter horseshit that is Adwaita. But I don't know because I'm clearly a retarded KDEfag.

I recently bought a practically new HP Spectre x360 "convertible" laptop w/ i7 Skylake & HD 520 graphics for a good price, and I've spent weeks installing all of the major distros, just trying to get it to switch from "laptop mode" to "stand mode" to "tablet mode" properly. A few days ago I decided to give Fedora 25 a try, and it's the only distro that worked 100% on a fresh install.

The closest I got before Fedora was Ubuntu, where I had to write scripts to detect & switch modes, flip the screen, disable the clickpad/keyboard when necessary, etc...

TL;DR: Fedora simply looks & works more like a professional OS than any other distro running on modern hardware

It's not that it was <i>that</i> complicated, it's the fact that you even need to install & configure shit like drivers for the sensors, hack together custom scripts to sortof make it work, have weird console glitches when booting & shutting down, etc... I'm just sayin', Fedora has had none of that one this machine. All other distros did.

I switched from Fedora to Solus, simply because of the fact that Fedora took over 40 seconds to boot, with Solus it went down to 14 seconds....

Now I think Solus is not so good, since you cannot find everything on the repositories, most software is budled as .deb or .rpm and it won't work on solus, so you have to compile it yourself, and because of some fucked up dependency it won't work.

I'm thinking of going to install Arch, I have neve tried it but I really like the idea to make personalized system, with only the packages you need.
Maybe I should also try Gentoo, I don't know which could be better...
>>
>>59491403
Personal experience: neither.

Fedora/Ubuntu/Debian/openSUSE still are the best for home computing, really.

Why the boot time matters to you, it's beyond me, really.

Arch is horrible because of AUR and because of high-maintenance. And because it's a meme.
Gentoo is horrible, well...because it's high-maintenance. Even more than Arch. Unless you like that. Again, maymay distro.
Void is nice, but again, support for Void requires a lot of stuff being compiled by yourself. However, Void makes that easier, somewhat.

Not a maymay distro.

openSUSE...desu, as a Fedora user, I always found the openSUSE installer to be a pain in the butt, and sometimes instable as hell for some retarded reason.

Practically any distro can work with a 1GB RAM. Literally no use for Arch.

Fedora is literally the comfiest Linux experience I've ever had. I'd recommend it for both normies and experts.

I've experienced a total of 2 problems:
Chromium has no support for ffmpeg codecs

It's just good. It comes with all the bells and whistles you expect from a DE outside of the box (3.24 in two days is bringing a blue light filter and weather area in the notification center). For where it falls short in functionality, there's always extensions. The Gnome apps might be basic, but they're also light and get the job done. I only use a couple non-stock apps on my Fedora install.

And if you don't agree with the devs' workflow philosophy you can easily change Gnome's layout with things like dash to dock and dash to panel for something closer to a Windows/macOS experience. There's also things like panel scroll to make workspaces much easier to manage and use.

On the flipside, all of this does make it one of the heavier DEs, no one is denying that.

>>59503647
In my experience it's the most stable distro I've tried. Fedora is very future-forward, bloat is minimal, Gnome runs like butter especially on Wayland and it's actually really easy to use for a newbie.

The only downside is that people that don't use the default Gnome spin do run into problems and they don't account for as many hardware as Ubuntu does. Politics-wise, Red Hat gives back to the community instead of fragmenting things even more (Mir),

If you got the Gnome3 version, start off by installing tweak tool and some extensions to make the UI less of a hassle to use.

XFCE is pretty good except the thumbnailer for thunar has an issue with SELinux, I use nautilus anyway but that might be a dealbreaker for some.

Anything Cinnamon can do, Gnome or Mate or XFCE can do better.

Straight from the MPV github page:

"Every other month, an arbitrary git snapshot is made, and is assigned a 0.X.0 version number. No further maintenance is done.

The goal of releases is to make Linux distributions happy. Linux distributions are also expected to apply their own patches in case of bugs and security issues."

Enjoy your botnet video player.
