One of Fedora’s main objectives is not only to contain free and open source software, but also to be on the leading edge of such technologies.

Fedora 11, codenamed “Leonidas”, was released on June 9, 2009. The features include ext4, a 20-second startup, and the latest GNOME, KDE and XFCE releases. Firefox 3.5 and Thunderbird 3’s latest pre-releases are available as well.

Fedora 11 Download

You can download Fedora Linux 11 via the web/ftp server or via BitTorrent (recommended).

32 bit vs 64 bit Fedora 11 version

  • For almost all PCs select 32 bit version. For e.g., most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors. Good for destkop usage. Almost all multimedia plugins and software works with 32bit edition.
  • Choose 64 bit version to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). For servers and advanced feature such as hardware error detection, access to more than 4GB RAM and so on use 64bit version.

  14. The Bit Torrent files for downloading Fedora 11 seem awfully slow. The only alternate .torrent file I found was from Pirate Bay, and that was even slower. Does anyone know of yet more .torrent files for Fedora 11? There is no rule that says it has to come from the Fedora Project.

  15. Tried the DVD 64 iso and it did not work. I download it twice…something wrong with the image you have … please update.

  16. Yousef-

    When you downloaded it twice, did you check the checksums to make sure it downloaded correctly? Or did you download it with a utility that automatically performs this check, such as ‘curl’ or ‘wget’?

    Unfortunately, it really is more likely that your download failed twice in a row than that they are hosting a bad image.

  17. I have a mac powerPC G3 running Mac OS 9.2. I have heard that Linux can run on a MAC. If it is possible, what version. I would like to run Linux fedora, but I have no clue what to do. Any kind of help is welcome! The Mac has 384 MB of RAM, 40 GB HD, CDROM

  18. Herbert T-

    You can run the i386 version on the new Macs, the ones that use the Intel processor instead of the PowerPC. But I have not heard of a build that will run on a PowerPC G3.

    I have heard of a build of Knoppix Linux that runs on the PowerPC. It was used by SystemRescueCD, which is (was?) available in a PowerPC version.
