“Withdrew” means, it is no longer part of the Fedora documentation.
You still get it, if you select a no longer supported release. Some
of the docs team proposed to deleted it completely. I was in favor to
keep it for historical reason. But maybe it is better, indeed, to
remove it completely. The installation guide you find for release 36
is actually already completely outdated for that release, as well as
for even older releases.
I did not select any release. When the linked documentation didn’t
contain the information regarding partitioning scheme, I did a simple
search and the sites I linked came up.
If it’s all that outdated and no longer relevant, then, yes, I would
suggest deleting it. I’d rather not find that information and ask in the
appropriate channels, than search turning up outdated, irrelevant docs.
And regarding the Workstation docs: It is the decision of Workstation
WG to keep it that way. If I remember the discussion correctly, the
idea is that this is quite sufficient for a graphical OS. I don’t
know if anyone is working on extending the doc. You should ask
Workstation WG on their channel and maybe suggest what you think is
Well, I think it leaves a lot to be desired. For instance it doesn’t
take you through the installation process. And, no, that’s not self
explanatory. Certainly not for new users coming to Fedora. Maybe the
online documentation in the installer has that information. I haven’t
But I understand this is not the right place to discuss this further.
[quote=“Penguinpee, post:14, topic:82283, username:gui1ty”] As I
mentioned already, the Server netinstall ISO has everything on board
to configure and install Fedora to one’s liking. Users need only be
made aware of the fact that if they desire the default Workstation
partition scheme, they have to configure that using custom
“only”, nicely put. There is a lot to do and even more to know. And
the idea with edition-specific ISOs is to make the process as quick
and straightforward as possible for the system administrator. In this
respect, you can technically install anything with the server ISO,
but that is exactly not the objective at all. And in this sense it is
Can you elaborate on “a lot to do and even more to know”, please?
A system administrator in my vocabulary, is an advanced and
knowledgeable user. One who doesn’t faint from going into custom
partitioning and selecting a different scheme. From a system
administrator I would expect some knowledge about partitioning and being
able to make a suitable choice, Especially if that choice is well
If you want a simple, straightforward installation, grab the Live ISO of
the flavor of your choice. There you get everything pre-cooked. Pop it
in the microwave, heat it up and enjoy your plat du jour of Fedora.
