Error installing add-ons in Fedora Workstation 40

I know that this is an obscure distro and you mightn’t want to put too much effort into it but thought I’d share this one just in case there’s an easy fix (for you or for me!).

Trying to install any add-on I get this error message (which I’m guessing is related to Fedora’s general propensity to be OTT on security matters):



Error installing add-on
EXDEV cross-device link not permitted

I can try manually renaming as it suggests but thought I would share anyway

Thank you for sharing @danielrosehill! We do have some other work to do with Fedora so this might be something worth looking into.
