Following article suggest that Fedora 23 might be 64-bit only:

How hard is it to make a 32-bit distro if you are making a 64-bit one anyway? I guess in the back of my mind I sorta assumed it was scripted and automatic, so it just meant running some script twice rather than once.

Is it a tremendous hassle to make a 32-bit distro if you are making a 64-bit one anyway?

I downloaded the 32 bit ver of xface fedora spin . I burned it to DVD. After I try to boot it will not boot at all so I try to re download it try to burn it again it dose burn it all the way and pass. But when I try to boot off DVD it dose not boot . So I try a burn copy of the 64bit ver and it boot's just fine . Any ideas

So, I read the blurb that strongly advises against doing an iso-based fedup, and strongly encouraging a network-based fedup in order to yank in all the updates at once.

I have a bunch of machines to upgrade to both the workstation and server products. Having each one download everything it needs, is going to get real old.

In the past I simply rsync-ed the installation image. I have plenty of disk space on the LAN. Then I just fedup-ed everything from my rsynced image. This was almost the most efficient way to get everything updated.

Is there a single repository that I can keep rsync-ing regularly, and use it to upgrade my machines “ to both workstation and server products“ over a period of time?

Runnning old "Fedora 20-x86_64", and want to install Fedora-Kde-live-25-1-3.

Situation:
$ uname -rov
3.19.8-100.fc20.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 12 17:08:50 UTC 2015 GNU/Linux

$ sudo lvmdiskscan

The /dev/sda* is a SSD(KINGSTON SV200S3128G) 128GB, with old "Fedora 16-x86_64", and only want to recover some files in /home.

The /dev/sdb* is a Seagate(ST3320613AS) 320GB, running old "Fedora 20-x86_64", with some important file in /home.

$ sudo lvscan
ACTIVE '/dev/fedora/swap' [3,77 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/fedora/home' [48,48 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/fedora/root' [50,00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg_maq01/lv_swap' [5,75 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg_maq01/lv_home' [63,00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg_maq01/lv_root' [50,00 GiB] inherit

$ mount | grep /dev/mapper
/dev/mapper/fedora-root on / type ext4 (rw,relatime,seclabel,data=ordered)
/dev/mapper/fedora-home on /home type ext4
(rw,relatime,seclabel,data=ordered)

Problem:
Want to mount the SSD on "Fedora 20" to recover some files, copying it to /dev/sdb3 space(/dev/sdb3 not used/mounted). After this, I can erase all SSD and install "Fedora 25" on it.

Thanks for help.
