tested Beta:
"Greetings. Per this fesco ticket: https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/1714 I have created the Fedora 28 spins/labs page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/28/Spins All spin maintainers/owners/interested parties should test their spins and at least update this wiki page with beta/final testing. Spins that don't have at least one tester at Beta may be dropped and not shipped in Final, so PLEASE make sure at least someone tests. Spin maintainers are also encouraged to test their spin more often and make sure it's composing correctly every day for Branched f28 and rawhide. Thanks, kevin."


can be installed with
missed spins


Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1519042 soas starts in journal:

This can be confusing for users

"Fix by hitting f1 key"

To connect to wireless AP if present

"then f3 key

to get to main menu"
james Cameron:new users won't have much problem with it, and it has nothing to do with fedora, it is a gtk+ vs sugar toolkit problem at heart, also seen in debian and ubuntu.

Sugar on a Stick (f29)


Install SOAS (under construction-older anaconda)

Fedora-29-Live-SoaS liveinst

  • The Fedora Sugar on a Stick Spin can be installed from a booted SoaS Live CD/USB.
    See Sugar on a Stick/Downloads for the current version.
  • This tutorial is set up for a 4 GB USB stick or VirtualBox 4 GB hard disk install.
  • liveinst (anaconda) requires 2012 MB memory as a minimum to start in Fedora 29.
  • You can also install to a regular hard disk. See Type of installation below.
  • Burn and Boot the CD, or load the .iso as described here, and boot the Live USB.

Name Screen

  • First Screen that appears when boot is done.
The Name and colors screens set the individual SSH ID for the user and only run once.
