If you are coming to Fedora from Ubuntu you may be surprised that installing the package doesn’t automatically start the SSH daemon on boot. We can change this with the following command, run as root:
systemctl enable sshd.service
The next time you boot your SSH server should have started automatically.
Fedora, unlike Ubuntu with apt-get, uses yum to update it’s software. Run the following as root (either by logging in as root or using su in front of the command):
You will see a list of the updated packages and a confirmation at the end. On our test system it looks like this:
Install 3 Packages (+ 6 Dependent packages)
Upgrade 97 Packages (+157 Dependent packages)
Total size: 332 M
Total download size: 275 M
Is this ok [y/d/N]:
If you are happy with the listed upgrades and/or new installations hit ‘y’ to update!
We were asked this today – we have found that the “Other Media” works fine for installation and use, where other options (Red Hat options, for example) don’t work.
