Fedora 24: Upgrade

Today I decided to upgrade my testing laptop (Lenovo T530) to Fedora 24 Beta from Fedora 23. This is my first experience with the upgrade process in Fedora and I wanted to detail the experience here. The upgrade process took a long(ish) time, but I had a working system when I completed the upgrade. There were a few things that I noticed that were of concern.

  • Pitivi crashed the system (it worked on F23)
  • Drop Down Terminal (Gnome extension) is no longer transparent
  • The cpu fan turns on even with minor web browsing

I wanted to make sure that these issues were not cause by some cruft leftover by the upgrade so I downloaded the beta of F24, burned it to a USB drive and installed it on the system fresh. I ended up with all the same concerns so I am convinced this is caused by the non-release nature of F24 and not the upgrade process itself. I ran pitivi from the command line and got the following output.

Traceback (most recent call last):

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

As this is my first beta with Fedora I am not learning how to submit a bug report. After the bug report I will likely have to revert to F23 using a fresh install, because Pitivi is part of my current work environment for creating video loops.

update: I installed Arch Linux with Pitiv and the program crashed as well. This appears to be an issue with Pitivi or the version of Gnome and not Fedora.

    Thanks for giving it a try for us. The pulseaudio bug hit my xps 13 running Linux Mint 17.3. Dell Support gave me a link which I’ve not tried yet. Occasionally audio drop with speakers popping, usually cured by reboot. I’ll post results.
