Installing IVPN on Fedora Silverblue

    Fedora Silverblue is unique because it uses an immutable filesystem and an ostree-based package management system. This means that the system files cannot be modified once they are installed, ensuring greater stability and security of the operating system.

    Commands to install the IVPN client on Fedora Silverblue:

    # Add the IVPN repository
    cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
    sudo wget

    # install IVPN client rpm-ostree install ivpn # install UI for IVPN client, if required rpm-ostree install ivpn-ui

    # reboot system systemctl reboot

    # enable IVPN service to start automatically sudo systemctl enable ivpn-service # start IVPN stervice sudo systemctl start ivpn-service
