Revision history [back]

Gnome session flashback is not available at Official repositories and I don't know any third party repo which maintain it.

Gnome Classic (gnome-classic-session) is available if you want to try.

sudo yum install gnome-classic-session

then logout and choose Gnome Classic. (but I don't think it has much difference from GNOME Shell on resources. I think it's just another interface - more classic - and the only difference is the UI)

On the other hand, a very good alternative is

MATE, which is a pure fork of GNOME 2 and very lightweight. Either you will install it alongside GNOME(3.x) ,

sudo yum install @MATE

or better

download and install the Fedora MATE spin.
