Hey mate,

I've found three issues so far:

1) opensc should be part of the base image as it enables freeipa
smartcard authentication and other related parts to work correctly (I'm
layering it in for now )

2) You can not rpm-ostree install vim:

Applying 68 overlays... error: Checking out vim-common-2:8.0.1187-
1.fc27.x86_64: Hardlinking
to ex.1.gz: File exists

I believe this is due to a duplicate file in vim-common and vim
packages, but I'd like your insight to this

3) I own a macbook pro, which means it has a broadcom wireless. This
requires firmware that is non-free to be installed. Sadly, the install
procedure is "extract some files to /lib/firmware"

Of course, this doesn't work on atomic because the base system is
readonly. So what would be a good course of action here for firmware
inclusion like this?  I can make an rpm for this at home I think, but
would be great to have this use case sorted a bit. 

Hope that helps! Otherwise, it's going really well, install was
painless, and I already have most of my applications working with
flatpak :) 

Thanks for all the hardwork!
