Fedora 29 image - which edition?
Does anybody know which "edition" is the Fedora 29 image offered by Linode?
I mean it is Fedora Server or the generic Workstation desktop-oriented version / edition?
One other thing…
I've got disk space to spare in my plan (not yet assigned into any actual disk devices).
What if I wanted to create a separate disk to try Fedora, keeping my existing disk with existing OS install untouched - should I be using "Deploy an image" in Linode Manager (as opposed to "Rebuild" which is destructive)?
The Linode-supplied Fedora 29 image is the web server edition. However, you could install a custom distribution and use the GLISH console to run a graphical desktop environment. You can find a full list of our Remote Desktop guides here.
To answer your second question, you are correct. To deploy a second disk you would use the Deploy an Image function. The Rebuild feature would be used if you were wiping the disk and starting fresh.
