Install Fedora

 

I recommend reading the Release Notes and Common Errors page before installation. You will find instructions that may have application on your specific hardware.

 

Fedora images are hybrid ISO images, so they can be used for DVD burning or flash drive creation. They also work on BIOS and UEFI systems.


I recommend using the Fedora Media Writer application to create the bootable flash drive. There is also a version for 'argh' Windows.

 

As this is a "live" distribution, the new OS (operating system) will run from the DVD or pen drive without making any changes to the hard disk. You can test the OS and only then install it on the hard drive.


After installation, restart the computer, remove the DVD or flash drive, log in and update the entire system.

 

[pratajo@amd64 ~]$ sudo dnf update
(enter your password)

 

Restart the computer to load a new kernel and start the updated applications. Restart on the desktop or with the reboot command.

 

[pratajo@amd64 ~]$ reboot

 

 

Parameterize DNF

 

Fedora uses DNF to install and update its software over the internet. It also automatically determines application dependencies.

 

Repositories Fedora
Fedora includes two repositories by default: fedora (the same software packages as the DVD) and updates with updated packages. These repositories “sign” their RPM files to make sure they are valid when they are downloaded.

 

Other Repositories
For applications that conflict with Fedora policy (MP3, DVD, MPEG, binary drivers, etc.) the RPM Fusion repository is required.

 

[pratajo@amd64 ~]$ sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
