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

and Home Assistant itself.

$ pip3 install homeassistant

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
$ python3.6 -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.
