Using software included in NeuroFedora
NeuroFedora is a set of packages that can be installed on a Fedora system. So, one can setup a Fedora system and then install whatever tools they use. Fedora provides a variety of installation media:
We suggest the Fedora workstation as a well designed GNOME based installation.
For headless (such as clusters and servers without a graphical interface) installations, we suggest the Fedora server installation.
Users that prefer other desktop environments, such as KDE, XFCE, LXQT, Mate, Cinnamon or LXDE, can select a Fedora spin.
The Fedora scientific image provides a KDE based installation that includes various generally used scientific tools.
Detailed information on installing Fedora can be found in the Fedora documentation.
We provide ready to use ISO images that include pre-installed software. These can either be used "live" without installation, or they can be used to set up a Fedora Workstation based system that includes a set of Neuroscience software. Information on these can be found on a separate page.
Software provided by NeuroFedora
|More software is regularly being added to NeuroFedora. Please get in touch with us for specific requests.|
Users have access to the complete set of software maintained by the Fedora community. The NeuroFedora special interest group (SIG), however, focusses on providing software for:
computational neuroscience (Install media available!)
Please use the individual pages to learn more.
Extra software (COPR)
Free/Open source software that is harder to include in Fedora (usually because it is developed in a way that makes it difficult to package while implementing the Fedora packaging guidelines) is temporarily provided in an extra COPR repository. The NeuroFedora team will continue to work with upstreams to move it to official Fedora repositories.
Use of containers is discussed on a separate page.
