Getting Started

Welcome to the getting started guide for Fedora IoT. Both this guide and Fedora IoT images are in the very early stages, so please report any issues to the mailing list.

Supported Platforms

For the moment Fedora IoT supports the x86_64 and aarch64 architectures. The components to support ARMv7 are being worked upon and will be added shortly.

We have a page covering the currently tested Reference Platforms. Other devices supported by Fedora on either x86_64 or aarch64 should work just fine but haven’t been widely tested in the IoT context so your milage may vary.

The list of supported reference devices will expand with time. If you’re a hardware vendor and would like to have a device become a reference platform by actively participating and testing Fedora IoT, please reach out to Peter Robinson, the Fedora IoT Lead.

Required resources

The images being created are currently 4GB in size. The current memory used for testing is 1GB of RAM. The Fedora IoT base image should run with less, but of course this limits the amount of container applications that can be run on top of the base OS.
