5.4. x86_64 Specifics for Fedora

This section covers specific information about Fedora and the x86_64 hardware platform.

5.4.1. Hardware requirements for x86_64

In order to use specific features of Fedora 7 during or after installation, you may need to know details of other hardware components such as video and network cards.
5.4.1.1. Memory requirements for x86_64
  • Minimum RAM for text-mode: 256MiB
  • Minimum RAM for graphical: 384MiB
  • Recommended RAM for graphical: 512MiB
5.4.1.2. Hard disk space requirements for x86_64
The disk space requirements listed below represent the disk space taken up by Fedora 7 after the installation is complete. However, additional disk space is required during the 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.
