    System Requirements:


    For PowerPc:
    Minimum CPU: PowerPC G3 / POWER4
    Fedora Core 5 supports only the "New World" generation of Apple Power Macintosh, shipped from circa 1999 onward.
    Fedora Core 5 also supports IBM eServer pSeries, IBM RS/6000, Genesi Pegasos II, and IBM Cell Broadband Engine machines.
    Recommended for text-mode: 233 MHz G3 or better, 128MiB RAM.
    Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz G3 or better, 256MiB RAM.

    For x86:
    The following CPU specifications are stated in terms of Intel processors. Other processors, such as those from AMD, Cyrix, and VIA that are compatible with and equivalent to the following Intel processors, may also be used with Fedora Core.
    Minimum: Pentium-class - Fedora Core 5 is optimized for Pentium 4 CPUs, but also supports earlier CPUs such as Pentium, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III, and compatible AMD and VIA processors. Fedora takes this approach because Pentium-class optimizations actually result in reduced performance for non-Pentium class processors. In addition, scheduling for Pentium 4 processors, which make up the bulk of today's processors, is sufficiently different to warrant this change.
    Recommended for text-mode: 200 MHz Pentium-class or better
    Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz Pentium II or better
    AMD64 processors (both Athlon64 and Opteron)
    Intel processors with Intel® Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel® EM64T)
    Minimum RAM for text-mode: 128MiB
    Minimum RAM for graphical: 192MiB
    Recommended for graphical: 256MiB
    Hard Disk Space Requirements
    The disk space requirements listed below represent the disk space taken up by Fedora Core 5 after the installation is complete. However, additional disk space is required during the installation to support the installation environment. This additional disk space corresponds to the size of /Fedora/base/stage2.img on Installation Disc 1 plus the size of the files in /var/lib/rpm on the installed system.
    In practical terms, additional space requirements may range from as little as 90 MiB for a minimal installation to as much as an additional 175 MiB for an "everything" installation. The complete packages can occupy over 9 GB of disk space.
    Additional space is also required for any user data, and at least 5% free space should be maintained for proper system operation.

     

    For x86_64:
    Memory Requirements
    This list is for 64-bit x86_64 systems:
    Minimum RAM for text-mode: 128MiB
    Minimum RAM for graphical: 256MiB
    Recommended RAM for graphical: 512MiB
    Hard Disk Space Requirements
    The disk space requirements listed below represent the disk space taken up by Fedora Core 5 after the installation is complete. However, additional disk space is required during the installation to support the installation environment. This additional disk space corresponds to the size of /Fedora/base/stage2.img on Installation Disc 1 plus the size of the files in /var/lib/rpm on the installed system.
    In practical terms, additional space requirements may range from as little as 90 MiB for a minimal installation to as much as an additional 175 MiB for an "everything" installation. The complete packages can occupy over 9 GB of disk space.
    Additional space is also required for any user data, and at least 5% free space should be maintained for proper system operation.
    RPM Multiarch Support on x86_64
    RPM supports parallel installation of multiple architectures of the same package. A default package listing such as rpm -qa might appear to include duplicate packages, since the architecture is not displayed. Instead, use the repoquery command, part of the yum-utils package in Fedora Extras, which displays architecture by default. To install yum-utils, run the following command:
    su -c 'yum install yum-utils'
    To list all packages with their architecture using rpm, run the following command:
    rpm -qa --queryformat "%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n"
