Download Older Versions of Fedora

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008 ~ 10:28 pm by Mauriat Miranda

A frequently asked question is: Where can I find a specific older version of Fedora? The correct answer is: If you CANNOT find it on the official Fedora Mirror List, then chances are it is too old and not supported.

Unless you need an older version for some very specific task, I strongly recommend that you use a recent version of Fedora.

To find an older version, start by going through the mirrors to see if you can find a site that is physically closer to you (for faster downloads). If you cannot find the version on a mirror, try downloading from Redhat’s site (below).

Some things to note:

  • If a DVD image is not available try to generate your own DVD from CD’s.
  • The SRPM ISO images are for source code and not useful for running and/or installing.
  • The follow links could be removed at any point in the future.
  • The rescue-CD is not needed for installing/running but maybe helpful to boot or fix an existing installation.
  • Since you need to download each ISO individually, make sure to verify the MD5SUM or SHA1SUM.

    Wish there were torrents, though. My connection is slow and a torrent would improve stability.
