Hi, thank you for the replies. I tried to exclude the kernel from /etc/dnf/dnf.conf by adding the line “exclude=kernel*” and updated, without luck. This alone didn’t do the trick. One may really need to exclude the inux-firmware as well, but I didn’t try this yet.
In another topic here I found a Minimal Install Image v33-1.3 that also works:
Is a bit hard to find, so one may find this link handy. I now flashed this one.
Bluetooth doesn’t seem to work, but I dont need it.
Yes, not updateing might be better for now, however it is save to update at least a few packages, like this:
dnf upgrade sudo* openssh* firewall* selinux* openssl* nftables* iptables*
Some sudo versions have a nasty vulnerability, see https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-3156
So “dnf list installed sudo” should return at least 1.9.5p2 on Fedora 33.
One tipp for those who had the same needs with the Minimal image:
dnf install bash-completion # if you wanna have a working tab key completion (install, logout, login, works)
Set your locale in case your keyboard layout does not fit:
localectl # Show your settings
dnf search glibc-langpack # find your language pack
dnf install "your language pack" # install your language
dnf install libxkbcommon-x11 # install X11-Layouts, not certain if this is needed
localectl set-x11-keymap "language short" # sets your language
localectl set-x11-keymap de # Sets your keymaps and system language to german
Remember to set a keyboard layout neutral password in advance.
