Fedora Documentation


Fedora documentation describes how to install and use the Fedora operating system and the software packaged by the Fedora Project.
Select a language in the menu to the left, then select a Fedora release and a document title. Fedora documentation has been translated into around forty languages and is available in multi-page HTML, single-page HTML, PDF, and EPUB formats.
If you would like to contribute to Fedora documentation, visit the Fedora Documentation Project at If you would like to translate Fedora documentation into your language, visit the Fedora Localization Project at

Note — Not every document is available in every language

If you cannot find a particular document in the menu to the left, the Fedora Localization Project might not have translated it into your language yet. Select English on the language menu to view the most complete set of Fedora Documentation.
Older Fedora documentation
The Fedora Documentation Project only maintains documentation for Fedora 19 and Fedora 20. We also preserve older documentation on this site for historical interest and to acknowledge the generous contribution of time and effort by many, many writers and translators. In 1997, Richard Stallman wrote:
“The biggest deficiency in free operating systems is not in the software — it is the lack of good free manuals that we can include in these systems.”[1]
We thank everybody who worked hard to correct that deficiency for previous versions of Fedora.
