Installation on Fedora


Fedora is an operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project. There are releases for x86 and x86_64 including ARM and other architectures.

Install the development package of Python.

sudo dnf -y install python3-devel redhat-rpm-config

To isolate the Home Assistant installation a venv is handy. First create a new directory to store the installation and adjust the permissions.

sudo mkdir -p /opt/homeassistant
sudo useradd -rm homeassistant -G dialout
sudo chown -R homeassistant:homeassistant /opt/homeassistant

Now switch to the new directory, setup the venv, and activate it.

sudo -u homeassistant -H -s
cd /opt/homeassistant
python3.8 -m venv .
source bin/activate

Install Home Assistant itself.

pip3 install homeassistant colorlog

Check the autostart section in the documentation for further details and the Firewall section if you want to access your Home Assistant installation.
