From Fedora Project Wiki


Install Fedora CoreOS and set up a simple containerized service via Ignition.


  1. Download and verify the latest FCOS next image (pick the right image for your environment).

How to test

  1. Create an Ignition file. When writing the configuration, provide a systemd unit which runs a service via podman. The documentation uses busybox as an example, but feel free to use another containerized service of your choice.
  2. Launch your Fedora CoreOS system using this Ignition file. See Launching FCOS for a guide how to launch FCOS in most environments (bare metal, virtual, cloud, etc).

Expected Results

  1. You can SSH successfully into your FCOS system.
  2. The containerized service is successfully installed and started as per your Ignition file configuration.
  3. The linked documentation makes sense, nothing is obviously missing, and the instructions are clear.
