Hardware Overview
Fedora {PRODVER} provides software to suit a wide variety of applications. The storage, memory and processing requirements vary depending on usage. For example, a high traffic database server requires much more memory and storage than a business desktop, which in turn has higher requirements than a single-purpose virtual machine.
Minimum System Configuration
The figures below are a recommended minimum for the default installation. Your requirements may differ, and most applications will benefit from more than the minimum resources.
Low memory installations
Fedora {PRODVER} can be installed and used on systems with limited resources for some applications. Text, VNC, or kickstart installations are advised over graphical installation for systems with very low memory. Larger package sets require more memory during installation, so users with less than 768MB of system memory may have better results preforming a minimal install and adding to it afterward.
For best results on systems with less than 1GB of memory, use the DVD installation image.
Recommended System Configuration
The figures below are recommended for the default x86_64 Workstation installation featuring the Gnome desktop . Your requirements may differ, depending on Desktop Environment and use case.
4GB System Memory
20GB unallocated drive space
Display resolution
VGA capable of 1024x768 screen resolution
Graphical Installation requires 800x600 resolution or higher
Graphical installation of Fedora requires a minimum screen resolution of 800x600. Owners of devices with lower resolution, such as some netbooks, should use text or VNC installation.
Once installed, Fedora will support these lower resolution devices. The minimum resolution requirement applies only to graphical installation.
Graphics Hardware
Minimum Hardware for Accelerated Desktops
Fedora {PRODVER} supports most display adapters. Modern, feature-rich desktop environments like *GNOME3* and *KDE Plasma Workspaces* use video devices to provide 3D-accelerated desktops. Older graphics hardware may *not support* acceleration:
