Thanks to @Khlydo on Twitter, I came to know of this OS, Nobara. The thing that attracted me most to it is the fact that, it’s a custom port of Fedora 35 made by Glorious Eggroll, the developer behind GE-Proton. So, here, we have Nobara OS for PS4. This would be a nice addition to the various PS4 Linux distros available as of today. Some of the other great Linux distros available for PS4 today include Pop OS, Fedora 35 and Steam OS 3 by Nazky.
This distro is already feature-packed with many major gaming and streaming applications coming inbuilt. I hope you like it.
Update: Nobara 36 for PS4 is now available.
- Display Manager – GDM & LXDE (Both have been provided. User can switch)
- Mesa – 23.0.0-git
- Libdrm – 2.4.110
- Feature-packed OS for gaming, streaming and editing
Streaming and Video editing applications
- OBS Studio
And, many more… By the way, if you wish to install more applications, like emulators, check the terminal install commands database.

Installation: How to install Nobara OS on PS4?
Much like Pop OS, the usual installation method ends up in errors during the installation of Nobara. So, I suggest using the faster alternate method for installation.
Set up persistent swap space (Optional, but recommended)
I always recommend the user to set up swap space before beginning any demanding activities on the distro, like gaming or streaming. Including a swap space with the distro will increase the download size. That is why, you will have to do it manually. Here are the steps to set up a persistent swap space on PS4 Linux distros.
If this method doesn’t work, try this alternate swap creation method (second one in the section).
I hope you will enjoy this distro and let me know if you face any issues. As for the incorrect time issue on Fedora-based distros, this has been fixed. The fix has been automatically applied to Nobara. So, the time will be automatically update once you connect to internet. But, you might have to change your timezone.
