Installation of Fedora via ISO
I recommend to install Fefora via a netinst based ISO rather than from a full ISO. Indeed, there seems to be a bug while updating the system with the 2nd method.
It is recommended to install the 2 following RPM Fusion repositories:
Free RPM Fusion:
$ su -lc 'dnf install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
Non Free RPM Fusion:
$ su -lc 'dnf install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
Flash & Java
To install Adobe proprietary Flash in Firefox:
$ sudo dnf install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm $ sudo dnf install flash-plugin
Java (both 32bit and 64bit can be installed via RPM) or manually.
To install from RPM (downloaded from Java site):
$ sudo dnf install jre-8u101-linux-x64.rpm
It installs Java in
If you prefer RSSOwl over liferea, first install RSSOwl to. If you have the following error:
RSSOwl was unable to create a browser for reading news. Please refer to the FAQ for further help.
Do as follows:
$ cd /opt/rssowl/xulrunner/ $ chmod 755 $(file * | grep executable | sed 's/:.*//') $ ./xulrunner --register-user ./xulrunner-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libhunspell-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Identify where libhunspell related *.so files are located:
$ locate libhunspell /usr/lib64/libhunspell-1.3.so.0 /usr/lib64/libhunspell-1.3.so.0.0.0
And create a symbolic link:
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libhunspell-1.3.so.0 /usr/lib64/libhunspell-1.2.so.0

Since Synology does not make Fedora packages anymore for Synology Drive, you'll need to make the package yourself using Alien (to convert *.deb to *.rmp).
- Install Alien:
$ sudo dnf install alien
- Now you'll need to patch Alien because it does not handle dependencies correctly. To do that, download the patch:
$ cd /tmp/ $ wget https://sourceforge.net/p/alien-pkg-convert/tickets/_discuss/thread/34cd1f59/6647/attachment/alien-8.95-rpm-fix.tar.xz $ tar xJf alien-8.95-rpm-fix.tar.xz $ sudo mv alien-8.95/Alien/Package/Rpm.pm /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Alien/Package/Rpm.pm
- Go to the download center and get the *.deb file (e.g. synology-drive-client-11050.x86_64.deb)
- Convert the DEB package to RPM using the following command:
$ sudo alien --to-rpm -vv synology-drive-client-11050.x86_64.deb
- Now, you should be ready to install:
$ sudo rpm -ivh synology-drive-6.0.0-11051.x86_64.rpm --nodeps $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/libnautilus-drive-extension.so /usr/lib64/nautilus/extensions-3.0/
