To install Fedora on a system suitable for doing the labs and project work in this course.

Install Location

This course (DPI908/SBR600) requires you to have your own Fedora installation on a 32- or 64-bit PC system. You can install it in any of three locations:

  1. On a laptop (recommended). You can choose whether to install it as the only operating system, as part of a multi-boot configuration, or install it in a virtual machine using software such as Virtual Box, VMWare, or KVM.
  2. On a computer you own at home (or another location), as long as that system is accessible to you via SSH from Seneca.
  3. On a removable disk pack (the same type used in other CTY courses, for use in the Open Lab or the SBR600 lab).

It is recommended that you have at least 15GB available for the installation.

Installing Fedora

If you do not already have a current version of Fedora installed on a suitable system:

  1. Obtain the Fedora installation image (use the most recently released currently-supported version). If you are downloading at Seneca, the Belmont mirror is probably the fastest place to get an image. If you have a 64-bit system, the 64-bit version is recommended.
  2. Install it on your system. No special installation options are required, but follow appropriate system administration practices.
  3. Ensure that your system is fully up-to-date (yum update).


A well-written blog post describing your Fedora installation. Include information about the release (e.g., Fedora 26), the version (32- or 64-bit), the system specs (CPU, memory, disk), and how you access your system (e.g., ssh).
