Overview

Avouch Linux continues to develop and integrate the latest free and open source software. The following sections provide a brief overview of major changes from the last release of Fedora.

More detailed information about changes in this release can be found on the Avouch Linux Wiki.

Hardware Overview

Avouch Linux provides software to suit a wide variety of applications. The storage, memory and processing requirements vary depending on usage. For example, a high traffic database server requires much more memory and storage than a business desktop, which in turn has higher requirements than a single-purpose virtual machine. Minimum System Configuration

The figures below are a recommended minimum for the default installation. Your requirements may differ, and most applications will benefit from more than the minimum resources.

  1GHz or faster processor
  1GB System Memory
  15GB unallocated drive space

Low memory installations

Avouch Linux can be installed and used on systems with limited resources for some applications. Text, VNC, or kickstart installations are advised over graphical installation for systems with very low memory. Larger package sets require more memory during installation, so users with less than 768MB of system memory may have better results preforming a minimal install and adding to it afterwards.

For best results on systems with less than 1GB of memory, use the DVD installation image.

Display resolution

Graphical Installation requires 800×600 resolution or higher

Graphical installation of Fedora requires a minimum screen resolution of 800×600. Owners of devices with lower resolution, such as some netbooks, should use text or VNC installation.

Once installed, Fedora will support these lower resolution devices. The minimum resolution requirement applies only to graphical installation.

Graphics Hardware

Minimum Hardware for Accelerated Desktops

Avouch Linux supports most display adapters. Modern, feature-rich desktop environments like GNOME3 and KDE Plasma Workspaces use video devices to provide 3D-accelerated desktops. Older graphics hardware may not support acceleration:

  Intel prior to GMA9xx
  NVIDIA prior to NV30 (GeForce FX5xxx series)
  Radeon prior to R300 (Radeon 9500)

CPU Accelerated Graphics

Systems with older or no graphics acceleration devices can have accelerated desktop environments using LLVMpipe technology, which uses the CPU to render graphics. LLVMpipe requires a processor with SSE2 extensions. The extensions supported by your processor are listed in the flags: section of /proc/cpuinfo

Desktop Environment for your hardware

Avouch Linux provides four desktop environment, GNOME3, KDE Plasma5 Workspaces, LXQT and Xfce4.
