[back to package description]


Hackage GPL-3 license Stackage Lts Stackage Nightly

A tool for downloading Fedora, ELN, and Centos Stream images. By default it targets the Workstation edition of Fedora.

Usage examples:

dl-fedora rawhide : downloads the latest Fedora Rawhide Workstation Live iso

dl-fedora 39 silverblue : downloads the Fedora Silverblue iso

dl-fedora respin kde : downloads the latest KDE Live respin

dl-fedora 38 server --arch aarch64 : will download the Server iso for armv8

dl-fedora --run 39 : will download Fedora Workstation and boot the Live image with qemu-kvm.

dl-fedora --check respin : checks if there is a newer respin iso image available.

dl-fedora --local rawhide : shows the current locally available image. It can be combined with --run to quickly run the latest local image, without a newer download.

dl-fedora c9s : downloads a Centos Stream 9 net installer.

By default dl-fedora downloads to ~/Downloads/ (correctly the XDG user "DOWNLOADS" directory), but if you create an iso subdirectory there (~/Downloads/iso/) it will use that directory instead.

dl-fedora downloads the latest mirrored image redirected from download.fedoraproject.org by default. If you want to ensure getting the very latest image you can use --latest, which will then download from dl.fedoraproject.org instead if your mirror is not synced yet. (This behavior changed with 0.10.)

If the image is already found to be downloaded it will not be re-downloaded of course. Curl is used to do the downloading: partial downloads will continue.

A symlink to the latest iso is also created: eg for rawhide it might be "Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-Rawhide-latest.iso".

It also tries to check the iso checksum and its gpg signature.
