THe AlmaLinux logo which is a ring of people with their hands meeting in the center. Each person is a different color, and it ends up looking like a rainbow flower shape

Alma Linux snapd install

Next up, on the quest from Alma Linux VPS to using SSL-encrypted Cockpit sessions, is snapd. Yeah, so it was Apache, now snapd and then certbot.

A strange blue cyber background with black lines going vertical and horizontal. The image of a woman takes up a third of the frame and she is starting at a the small image of a meme where someone is wearing a rainbow afro. "Support MindFuel Blog on Patreon" is meticulously crafted into a graphical overlay which obfuscates part of the underlying artistry. So sad.

Visit the snapd install instructions, Alma is the first OS in the list. Next, gotta use the EPEL repo

sudo dnf install epel-release
sudo dnf upgrade

Those should go pretty quick – less than 17mb of stuff as of this writing. Then install and enable snapd

sudo dnf install snapd
sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

That took a couple minutes – my EPEL connection was notably slower, but still no big deal.

This is symbolic link magic is in their instructions to enable “classic” snap. I think Certbot, as of this writing, uses classic snap

sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
