Fedora Core is een gratis en open source platform. Iedereen mag het downloaden, gebruiken, veranderen en verder distribueren zonder extra kosten.

Hoe Fedora Te Verkrijgen

Er is een aantal manieren om Fedora te verkrijgen. Hier zijn er een paar:

  • Download en schrijf je CD/DVDs
  • Koop Fedora van een distributeur:
  • Online Verkooppunten
  • Lokale Verkooppunten
  • Sponsor of Verzoek aan een Media Distributie Programma
  • SponsorMedia Programma
  • GratisMedia Programma
  • Een installatie vanaf het netwerk (Zie de Installation Guide )
  • Download de kleine installatie CD-ROM en installeer vanaf het Internet
  • Onder de 'distribution folder' (mirrors ), in de map genaamd 'images', staat een klein bestand genaam boot.iso, welke u kunt branden op een CD en kunt gebruiken om een Internet installatie op te starten. Houdt er rekening mee dat de betrouwbaarheid van uw Internet verbinding voor storingen kan zorgen, en dat deze methode niet wordt aangeraden voor nieuwe gebruikers. Deze methode wordt veelvuldig gebruikt door testers.
Warning.png Het Fedora Project brengt regelmatig updates uit, waaronder ook veiligheidsupdates, voor de pakketten in de Fedora Core en Fedora Extras repositories. U zult uw systeem voor updates moeten controleren na de installatie, en u zult het systeem daarna ook up-to-date moeten houden. Zie de handleiding Managing Software with yum voor details over hoe u uw systeem up-to-date kunt houden met yum.


Voor meer informatie over het upgraden van een bestaande installatie, zie de ["FAQ"] .


For details on the lifecycle of each Fedora Core release, please see the ["LifeCycle"] page.

How to Redistribute Fedora

Preparing Media

When you redistribute Fedora, you must remember that what you do reflects upon the Fedora Project and the surrounding community. It is therefore important that you target a level of quality with your distribution that is fitting of the Fedora Project and community. Using a consumer CD-RW and a pen to prepare the CDs and then selling the media over the Internet will reflect poorly upon Fedora. Such a method is perfectly fine for distribution to friends, family, LUGs, and other small, personal groups. If you wish to distribute Fedora on a large scale, please try to use appropriate equipment and produce quality labelling. There are no specific rules regarding how you can prepare media, but please try to remember how much effect what you do has on the project and community.

There is no standard regarding the preparation of media or packaging. It is important to remember the trademark guidelines when preparing any labels, packaging, or marketing materials. You can produce printed materials, including sleeves, cases, inserts, boxes, or labels, as long as they adhere to the trademark guidelines. At present, the Fedora Marketing Project is working on a logo and slogan that can be used in coordination with preparing a Fedora distribution.

OEM Distributors

The Fedora Project welcomes OEM distributors, but providers must adhere to the same trademark guidelines as other vendors. Specifically, you may not modify the Fedora Core installation and maintain the Fedora name. The nearest you may do is completely rebrand the distribution to comply with the trademark guidelines, make your modifications, and distribute the product under a different name. You may also not then say that your product "contains Fedora" or is an alternate "edition" of Fedora. You may say that your product is "a derivative of Fedora" or is "built upon Fedora", but you must make it clear that your product is NOT Fedora. If you use the Fedora name in such a manner, you must also note that Fedora is a registered trademark, and not attempt to confuse users or allude to a non-existant relationship between you and the Fedora Project or Red Hat.

Distributors who do not modify the original Fedora installation (beyond installing updates issued by the Fedora Project) may use the Fedora name in accordance with the trademark guidelines.

Fedora Trademark Guidelines

If you are performing any modifications on Fedora and redistributing it,review the Fedora Trademark Guidelines to understand what can and cannot be done with the Fedora trademarks. The Fedora Project must protect its brand name and reputation, and the guidelines help to protect both legitimate vendors and Fedora users. Fedora only includes Free and open source software and hence you are free to create derivatives but such modifications might be required to be distributed under a different name as defined by the guidelines

Online Distributors

Anyone may distribute Fedora online, and there are several ways to help. If you have large pipes, you can provide a public mirror. To get started, see the bottom of the mirror list . If you have only a consumer broadband connection, you might consider joining the torrent .

Distributions Derived From Fedora

There are many existing distributions which are derived from Fedora. For more information and listings, see the DerivedDistributions page.

Distribution Project
