    F27 Modular Server: conventional packages?

    I downloaded the Modular Server Beta from here, even though it's not officially out yet.

    I was a little bit surprised when I looked at the repos. They appear to contain ~3,000 modules but no conventional packages, which means that a lot of software is missing at the moment. Is the Modular Server supposed to use only modules and not a combination of both?

    I believe there are no conventional packages as such. there are more details about what this specific ISO is for here

    thanks for mentioning about the beta. I installed it on a dual core intel.

    I was able to use cockpit to change the ip address of the network interface
    and reconnect.

    I installed httpd but I haven't figured out how to open the ports.


    looking at Packages/ everything is still in rpm format.

    And these aren't modules in rpm-files?


    firewall-cmd works like in other Fedora-releases:

    firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http
    firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https
    firewall-cmd --reload

    Thanks, had to install firewall-config.

    I am curious as to the thinking behind this server being offered as a docker object, as not clear to
    me how this differs from atomic.

    I guess it comes from the long term support effort.

    Yeah, I was a bit surprised too. Generally, I download the server boot iso and choose minimal install, then build from there. However, as of F27, the modular server has its own modular server repos which don't have various common programs, such as rxvt-unicode. I asked about it on the testing list, and now, if one wants to do a minimal install with Fedora repos, vs modular server specific repos, one should either use the everything (from the alt.fedoraproject.org page) or the workstation boot iso, either of which gives the opportunity to choose minimal install.

    But short answer, anything from the modular server now has modular server repos which may or may not have packages you'd expect.
