HowTo: Fedora Atomic Workstation
Fedora Atomic Workstation (FAW) is the desktop version of Fedora Atomic Host. It is still heavily in development with only few external users. This project is actively maintained and is ready for use by sophisticated and interested users, but not ready for widespread promotion.
More detailed documentation with cheat sheet is coming on 15 February 2018.
Download the .iso and use it to create installation media.
For example, if you run the GNOME desktop, you can use the Write to disk capability of the Nautilus file browser to create an installation DVD. Alternatively, you can write the installation ISO image to a USB device with the
dd command or by using the application
ISO Image Writer which comes pre-installed with Fedora. With dd, if you had a USB thumbdrive mounted as
/dev/sdb, you might use this command (be careful to get the drive location right):
dd if=yourisoname.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
Installing inside an existing system
If you rather want to install FAW inside an existing system, please follow the steps described on Pagure.
