thanks to the awesome work from @Conan_Kudo we’re close to release snapd packages based on the 2.23.6 release into the official Fedora repositories. If you want to help testing there some easy instructions for how you can do so:
You need Fedora 25 or 24 installed. If you have rawhide or a snapshot build for the upcoming version 26 you can help too! If you don’t have a physical machine with Fedora on it you can install Fedora in a virtual machine. You can find more details where you can get Fedora from here.
As snapd is still under testing and not yet officially released you have to install it from the
updates-testingrepository. You can easily do this on the command line via the following command:
$ sudo dnf install snapd snapd-glib snapd-login-service --enablerepo=updates-testing
Now you have everything setup and can use the
snapcommand as normal. You can find some more details about what it does and which commands it provides here.
If you’re done testing and you have a Fedora developer account you can vote on theBodhi update requests here (you need to select the right update request for your Fedora version). Otherwise if you find bugs you can either file them on the Fedora bugzilla or Ubuntu’s Launchpad by targetting the snapd package.
Generally most features should work on Fedora. What currently doesn’t work
- AppArmor/Seccomp confinement: Both Seccomp and AppArmor confinement is turned off. AppArmor isn’t supported by Fedora but work torwards adding SELinux into snapd will start in the near future.
- classic snaps: Snaps using classic confinement are not working yet.
- Integration into gnome-software. This is something we currently work on together with the gnome-software developers.
Thansk for helping with testing! Have fun!
