Fedora 18 availability


I am looking for Fedora 18 to use with a self paced training I am taking. I have tried the normal mirrors and FTP sites but they all say "page not available". Where can I obtain this iso?

fedora 18 is DEAD and unsupported
fedora 19 is DEAD and unsupported
fedora 20 is DEAD and unsupported

so there is NO availability on 18
it has not been supported for some time
-- DO NOT USE FEDORA 18 --
install the current Fedora 22


are you refering to the fedora 18 posted on your last post from TWO!!! YEARS AGO
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi.../?#post5052833

two years ago fedora 18 was supported


and back then you were using the long dead and unsupported fedora 13

If you really want Fedora 18, you can find it at http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...inux/releases/ and the last updates at http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...linux/updates/

As a side note: Fedora 21/22 are not THAT different from Fedora 18.

It is quite possible they would work just fine for your self paced training.

yup, as has been clearly stated older versions of Fedora are no longer supported and for a self learning class I can only guess you will be required to deal with yum to add/remove programs, drivers, etc...

Fedora has moved from the old sysV to systemd since around Fedora 15 or so. Meaning 99 of the commands, options, etc... for Fedora 18 will reflect either exactly the same or close enough that a few min. googling will resolve the difference with the newer released versions of Fedora.

Also note that as of Fedora 22, there is official support for the ARM chip from the RH line once again. This means items like the Raspberry Pi can have Fedora installed on them and be officially supported. Took RH long enough to support the ARM chip for Fedora, next they need to do so with RHEL.

SoC<system on a chip> is one of the largest markets that is emerging technology with the IoT<internet of things>. Like the tech or not, they are coming and there is loads of money to be made by supporting ARM.
