DNF Fedora VPS Distribution

DNF is a solid advance over Yum. But it’s default behavior may not be what you’re used to. The reason is dnf slow Case in point is that the old yum plugin fastestmirror is now built into dnf! However, it’s default setting is OFF. So, the first thing I do when I install Fedora is turning it on so dnf slow is no more! Make sure your Fedora VPS server is powered on!

First, open your dnf.conf file.

sudo gedit /etc/dnf/dnf.conf

(gedit comes standard on Fedora or install nano.)

Now add this line to the bottom of the file:


Click save, close gedit, and you’re done! I find that it makes a massive difference in speed.
