I have Emacs 26.1 installed on Fedora 29. I would like to install the latest stable Emacs, which is version 26.2 released Apr 12, 2019.

I tried this from the terminal:

$ sudo dnf install emacs-26.2
...
No match for argument: emacs-26.2
Error: Unable to find a match

$ sudo dnf install emacs-26.1
...
Package emacs-1:26.1-6.fc29.x86_64 is already installed.

Did I use the correct dnf command? Or is Emacs 26.2 not in dnf yet?

Thanks.

UPDATE:

Emacs dnf versions are published on https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packag...

2019-04-15 16:42:22 -0600 marked best answer Installing Fedora: at what point should I verify the checksums?

I am running Fedora 24 and am performing a clean install to Fedora 25. I am following instructions from https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...

Which leads to instructions on https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/... to install Fedora Workstation to a desktop computer:

  1. Download Fedora Media Writer to Downloads folder on your system
  2. Run Fedora Media Writer on your system.
  3. Following the prompts to generate a live version of Fedora Workstation on a USB flash drive.
  4. Run the live version of Fedora Workstation from your USB flash drive on the computer you'd like to install to.
  5. Run the Fedora Media Writer application.
  6. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete installation.

I have completed steps 1 to 3 and have a USB flash drive named "Fedora-WS-Live-25-1.3".

At what point should I verify the checksums as described in https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/... ? And which files should I checksum?

Thank you.

2019-01-14 14:15:59 -0600 marked best answer "sudo dnf update" v.s. "Install pending software updates"

What is the difference between these two?

  • from command line: sudo dnf update
  • from GUI: Power off > Install pending software updates

Or do they do the same thing?

2018-03-27 03:08:30 -0600 edited question Nice example backup script tutorial

I know this forum is a question & answer format. But this post is not a question, I just want to share this backup script. Maybe somebody could use the script, or modify the script for their own needs.

A backup script tutorial includes backup-job and restore-job examples for a home computer.

Find more information here: https://github.com/wolfv6/rclone_jobber

A few rclone_jobber features:

  • Options to archive old backup files in their original hierarchy
  • Abort if job is already running (maybe previous run didn't finish)
  • Pop-up for error conditions
  • Option for a cron-monitoring service Logging
  • Free (open source Creative Commons Zero license)
  • Uses rclone

Rclone features:

  • Back up to remote cloud storage (safe from local disaster)
  • Over 30 cloud-storage providers to choose from (so you're never locked into a provider)
  • Back up to local storage
  • MD5/SHA1 hashes checked at all times for file integrity
  • rsync-like algorithm and interface
  • Optional encryption (Crypt)
  • Free (open source MIT license)
2018-03-24 14:07:34 -0600 commented question Nice example backup script tutorial

@florian, I am not sure how secure backintime encryption would be. backintime uses EncFS encryption, which has several known attack vectors: http://backintime.readthedocs.io/en/l... EncFS is not safe if the adversary has the opportunity to see two or more snapshots of the ciphertext at different times. This can happen when two copies of same file are in two different locations e.g. after moving a directory in source. I don't know much about security. Maybe it's not as bad as it sounds, but it scared me away.
