Fedora is one of the most respected distributions in all of Linux. Its fame has been earned by being one of the newest in the entire ecosystem. Great advances have had Fedora as the solid base of its releases. In addition, Fedora is the daughter of Red Hat. That is to say, it has the endorsement, development, and protection of this gigantic company. So the quality, the dedication is guaranteed. A few days ago, Fedora 30 came out with many changes and updated packages. So today we will give you a little view.
In general, we can say that this version of Fedora has meant a general update of the package. At this level, they stand out with two things. First, the presence of Linux Kernel 5 that we spoke about at the time. This new version of the Linux kernel has a lot of support for new hardware and also adds improvements to ARM support.
On the other hand, GNOME 3.32 is a big improvement in the performance of many people’s favorite desktop environment. And Fedora 30 includes this version. So, on the one hand, we’re talking about a version with the latest hardware support and considerably higher performance than previous versions.
So let us show you how to install it. First of all, it is quite easy to do it thanks to the Anaconda installer.
Install Fedora 30
First, you need to visit Fedora’s website to download the ISO. Remember that the default desktop environment is GNOME, but there are other Spins with Plasma, Cinnamon and other environments. For this case, I will use GNOME.
After that, make a bootable USB. For that, we have a nice post. Next, we can start.
The first screen you will see is the choice of language. Fedora 30 supports a lot of languages. We will have no problem finding ours.
Then, on another screen, you can set the time zone. It is easy to do. There you can start partitioning.
Now, it is time to do the partitioning. As it is a test, I have opted for automatic partitioning. But you can select the disk and do it manually. Then you will see the summary. Be careful because you could delete important information.
Then, you can start the process.
Once you have completed the installation, you have to restart the computer. Then, complete the privacy information and create the user. After that, you will have your Fedora 30 ready to use. As you can see, it is quite simple.
First impression on Fedora 30
This new version of Fedora behaves quite well, actually. You notice the improvement in performance thanks to GNOME 3.32. On the one hand, I like that there are not so many applications installed by default, although I understand that for beginners this can result in a problem.
On the other hand, Fedora 30 did not have problems installing itself in the environment where I tested it, so I assume that Kernel 5 has done its job correctly.
So for now, everything has gone well from hardware to software.
In these days of news, Fedora has released a new version that comes to update the essential components of the distribution. However, every day the installation process is made even easier, making it faster.
