Installing Fedora on a Raspberry Pi for macOS users
This procedure shows macOS users how to add Fedora ARM to a microSD for use with a Raspberry Pi.
Raspberry Pi Model B, version 2 or 3.
A microSD Card (16 GB or larger).
A computer running macOS.
SD card reader.
A Fedora ARM image from: link:https://arm.fedoraproject.org/[].
File-decompression software (such as link:https://theunarchiver.com/[The Unarchiver desktop application] or link:https://theunarchiver.com/command-line[The Unarchiver command-line tools]).
Download a Fedora ARM image from the link:https://arm.fedoraproject.org/[Fedora ARM website].
Extract the `.raw` file from the Fedora ARM image using file-decompression software (such as link:https://theunarchiver.com/[The Unarchiver])
For example:
$ unar Fedora-Server-armhfp-{MAJOROSVER}-1.1-sda.raw.xz
Follow the instructions provided by the Raspberry Pi foundation for writing an image to a microSD card from macOS: link:https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/mac.md[Raspberry Pi Foundation: Installing operating system images on Mac OS].
The `.img` and `.raw` extensions are used interchangeably for RAW file. Where the instructions indicate an input file with the `.img` extension, use the Fedora ARM image '.raw'.
Your microSD card is ready to be used with your Raspberry Pi.
