There must be some other way to install fedora than using "mediawriter?"
I want to install a copy of fedora-33 on another drive and I would like
to try a different method if someone can suggest one. Google has not

FEDORA-32/64bit LINUX XFCE Fastmail POP3
My Fedora Test Virtual Machine (qemu-kvm) won't upgrade
to 33 from, 32. I say it is upgrading then boot almost
immediately back into FC32.
# rpm --rebuilddb
# rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
# dnf --enablerepo=* update --refresh --disablerepo=brave*
# dnf install python3-dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
# dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=33 --allowerasing
# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-33-primary
# dnf system-upgrade -v reboot --debugsolver
And I forgot how to use --debugsolver to see what is
Running ]# dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=33
gets me a transaction test error saying
At least 674MB more space needed on the / filesystem.
But gparted shows /dev/sda with 111.79 GB including 87.94 GB
unused, and /dev/sdb1 with 1.8 TB, and only 4 MB used.
Partitioning seems simple till I have to use it, and then
immediately bewilders me. What do I have to do??

Does Fedora have an off-topic list for Fedorans
to talk about anything ?
I fixed the problem that I was having with the rpm-distro,
OpenMandriva. They apparently only have
two mirrors for the install I was using, and one of those
is possibly dead, and the install defaulted to the dead
one. It went unnoticed, I think because most of their users
are in France and Italy. Along the way, their forum members, figured
out my problem, but I ended up finding two articles on their
wiki to help me change the mirror to the correct one.
$ sudo dnf --refresh install om-mirror-selector
$ sudo om-mirror-selector.sh -m
So now I have 4 functional operating systems on my
computer on separate drives: Fedora Rawhide, Fedora 33,
OpenMandriva Alpha, and OpenMandriva Cooker with zen kernel
( znver1 ) built using clang.
Their leader, Bero, said their server was down yesterday, so I guess
that didn't help. They apparently have a team of at least 10
developers using Element as their chat forum. They were helpful.
They have one guy doing a mass-rebuild this week.
OpenMandriva uses Calamares installer, defaults to ext4, and
KDE Plasma 5.19 depending on the release you install.
The funny thing is that I still feel like a Linux novice, as there are
hundreds of things that I have no grasp of: gaming, virtual-machines,
samba, actual practical use of the software, like gnucash, but especially
troubleshooting, and especially with troubleshooting wi-fi, and printer
problems, zero knowledge of perl, rust, python, bash, and only know a few
terminal commands, etc.
Did you install hardware to a running machine? Not all hardware can appreciate that....
If it is an USB-device, you might have to trigger the udev-rules.

Subject: new hardware?
Just a refresher. If I add a new piece of presumably supported
hardware to my computer, do I need to run some kind of scan
to add it to the fray? Or does a reboot take care of that?

I followed your advice and using SHIFT + PRINT keys I can select an area and save to ~/Pictures/ directory. Thank you very much for your help.
Dear kind Fedora users,
I installed imagemagick to be able to use import and display commands. I used to be able to run
$ import picture.jpg
$ import picture.png
and capture an area of the screen or window. Now if I try to run that command nothing happens or freezes the computer and i have to reboot. How can I capture part of a window?
import command does not appear to work like it used to.
IS there an other command that can do the job?
