How to switch between Python versions on Fedora Linux

In this config you will learn how to switch between python versions on Fedora Linux. Let’s start by listing all Python versions available on your Fedora system:

Steam running on Fedora 25

Installing Steam on Fedora 25 Linux

Introduction

Steam is easily the most popular PC gaming client, and with hundreds of titles available for Linux, it’s not wonder why Linux gamers would want to install and use it. This is easier on some distributions than others, especially considering that Valve, the company behind Steam, officially targets Ubuntu and Debian.

Fedora users won’t find Steam anywhere in the official Fedora repositories. This is mostly because of Fedora’s strict free software policies. It is available through a reliable third-party repository, though, and it runs great when you get it set up.

Before You Install

Steam for Linux is 32bit only. That may feel like a hassle, but it really isn’t. The only thing that you have to make sure of is that the 32bit version of your graphics driver is installed on your system.

If you are using any of the open source drivers, chances are, 32bit support is already installed and working. If you want to reinstall to be sure run whichever of the following fits your graphics card.

Intel

$ su -c 'dnf -y install xorg-x11-drv-intel mesa-libGL.i686 mesa-dri-drivers.i686'

Fedora 24 Workstation Review: All Work and Very Little Play

Fedora 24 brings with it a number of technical improvements, software upgrades, and under the hood. It’s clear that the Fedora developers have been working closely with upstream sources to tightly integrate advances in everything from the kernel to GNOME, Systemd, NetworkManager, and GCC6 which have all been forged into a powerful core. However, that’s about where it ends.

When it comes to a being a full fledged desktop distribution, Fedora 24 falls a bit short, and that’s mostly due to the Fedora project’s limited repositories.
