I want to install Fedora 20 with GNOME 3. How much disk space do I need?

  • Depends on what else you will install. I have Debian I use a 20GB partition for root. I am currently using 8GB. Debian uses a lot of shared dependencies so as I install more it grows more slowly. Fedora may use more it is (enterprise) :-) Commented Jun 28, 2014 at 22:18

From the Fedora web site, you will need around 10 GB disk space during install. You will probably want more, though, if you are going to have large packages (like LaTeX, games, etc...). 20~30 GB won't hurt and should be enough for most users.

    I was about to answer that... +1 . Most of my Fedora machines need to use 40/50Gb space to have all the stuff they needs.

  • @user73898 - not enough for 3 versions of Blender (different plugins/interfaces), 2/3 Virtual Machines, Wine with varying Windows rubbish, web server, nearly every single FOSS graphical type program released in the past decade... - you don't need it, but it works well for most stuff all the same :)

  • I don't use it in virtualbox, I use it to host 3 VirtualBox VMs... 320GB would be absolutely fine, you can get bigger drive if you like.

I think minimum is 8-10 Gb, because there is lot of updates after installation.
