Fedora 18 for IBM System z 64bit official release

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Fedora 18 GA release for the IBM System z is here. This time only one

week (8 days to be correct) later than the primary and again more closer

to primary when we count the number of available packages.


Worth noting also here is that Anaconda, the Fedora installation

program, has been extensively redesigned since Fedora 17. Documentation

is available in the Installation Guide


and is generally applicable to Fedora for System z.


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 Fedora on IBM System z related can be found here:




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

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

hesitate to add your knowledge there.


More information about Fedora on IBM System z can be found at




Thanks go out to everyone involved in making this happen!
