5.2. PPC Specifics for Fedora

This section covers specific information about Fedora and the PPC hardware platform.

5.2.1. Hardware Requirements for PPC

5.2.1.1. Processor and memory
  • Minimum CPU: PowerPC G3 / POWER3
  • Fedora 7 supports only the "New World" generation of Apple Power Macintosh, shipped from circa 1999 onward.
  • Fedora 7 also supports IBM pSeries, IBM iSeries, IBM RS/6000, Genesi Pegasos II, and IBM Cell Broadband Engine machines.
  • Fedora 7 includes new hardware support for Genesi Efika, and for the Sony PlayStation 3.
  • Recommended for text-mode: 233 MHz G3 or better, 128MiB RAM.
  • Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz G3 or better, 256MiB RAM.
5.2.1.2. Hard disk space
The disk space requirements listed below represent the disk space taken up by Fedora 7 after installation is complete. However, additional disk space is required during installation to support the installation environment. This additional disk space corresponds to the size of /Fedora/base/stage2.img (on Installation Disc 1) plus the size of the files in /var/lib/rpm on the installed system.
In practical terms, additional space requirements may range from as little as 90 MiB for a minimal installation to as much as an additional 175 MiB for an "everything" installation. The complete packages can occupy over 9 GB of disk space.
Additional space is also required for any user data, and at least 5% free space should be maintained for proper system operation.
