The Fedora s390x team is happy to announce the first installable
Fedora on IBM System Z (aka s390x) since Fedora 6!
It's been a long time in the making, but after several Fedora releases
since we started getting everything up into shape again we've finally
reached a point where we can provide an installable version of Fedora on
IBM System Z again.
As it's not a final release yet and we still need to have a few minor
workarounds in the installer image the location isn't yet in the typical
release directory for secondary archs. We expect this to be a thing of
the past once we get that last few fixes upstream and the composes
running in a consistent and permanent fashion (real soon now!!!).
The documentation has of course also been updated and a whole section
has been added in the README on how to install your own release (not
just running a hercules image as with our Fedora 11 preview version).
Hercules images and instructions on how to run that or how to install it
yourself can be downloaded from
Individual packages are available at
More info will be added in the next few days at
If you're interested, please join our mailing list at
or our IRC channel #fedora-s390x on freenode.net
Thanks & regards, Phil
