As there doesn’t appear to be a topic for this now (mainly because I’ve historically co-opted the main release cycle thread), I’ve decided to finally create a topic for
snapd updates in Fedora.
To start things off, I’ve just submitted
snapd-glib-1.38 as updates to Fedora:
These should be pushed out to the mirror network within the next 12-24 hours.
These updates are a bit different than usual, as they will obsolete
snapd-login-service if it exists on your system. Also,
snapd-glib now conflicts with all known versions of
snapd-login-service to prevent it from being installed again.
The primary consumer of
snapd-login-service was GNOME Software. So I’d appreciate folks who use GNOME Software on Fedora testing this update, to ensure that the snap plugin doesn’t break with the transition. It shouldn’t, as I’ve been assured by @robert.ancell that it shouldn’t need it anymore.
From now on, if you attempt to install
snapd-login-service, you will get
snapd instead. This is by design to not break the
To test this update, do the following:
# Fedora 27
$ sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing --refresh upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2018-b097392ad2
# Fedora 26
$ sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing --refresh upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2018-7df5579f77
And of course, if any other issues come up, feel free to mention them here!
