Fedora 17 for IBM System z 64bit official release

Recommended Posts

There was a little inconsistency between the Fedora and Everything

repositories requiring a last minute respin, but the Fedora 17 GA

release for the IBM System z is finally here. This time again a bit

closer the primary when we count the number of available packages.


The links to the actual release are here:






and obviously on all sites that mirror the secondary arch content and we

still have few :-)


The first directory contains the normal installation trees as well as

one DVD ISO with the complete release.


Everything as usual contains, well, everything. :)



Additional information about known issues, the current progress and

state for future release, where and how the team can be reached and just

anything else IBM System z on Fedora related can be found here:




For architecture specific release notes, please read it as there are

again changes in the installation process. It's a wiki so don't hesitate

to add your knowledge there.

Thanks go out to everyone involved in making this happen!
