Bug Fix Advisory
Updated flatpak-runtime and flatpak-sdk container images are now available in the Red Hat Container Registry.
Flatpak is a system for running graphical applications as containers. A
Flatpak application has access to content from two container images - the
application itself, and the runtime image. To build against a particular
runtime image, a corresponding SDK image is used.
flatpak-runtime provides the runtime image and flatpak-sdk provides the SDK
This updates the flatpak-runtime and the flatpak-sdk container images in
the Red Hat Container Registry.
To install and use Red Hat Enterprise Linux Flatpak content available in the
Red Hat Container Registry, make sure that you have the latest version of the
Flatpak client installed on your system:
yum update flatpak
After updating the Flatpak packages, add the Flatpak remote to your system:
flatpak remote-add rhel https://flatpaks.redhat.io/rhel.flatpakrepo
Provide the credentials for your Red Hat Enterprise Linux account:
podman login registry.redhat.io
Podman only saves credentials until the user logs out. To save your
credentials permanently, run:
To enable the RHEL Flatpak remote for a set of workstations within an
organization, you should use a Registry Service Account. Credentials can be
installed system-wide at /etc/flatpak/oci-auth.json.
Then, you can install the runtime and the SDK:
flatpak install rhel com.redhat.Platform//el8
flatpak install rhel com.redhat.Sdk//el8
Generally, you do not need to install the runtime explicitly. It is
installed along with an application that uses it.
If you have previously installed the runtime or SDK, you can update to the
latest version by running:
The SDK is used by using flatpak-builder with a manifest that includes:
