I rent a cheap bare metal server with a fresh debian of which I have root access over ssh and no physical access ; and for some purpose I'd like it to run Fedora.

The server does not have any LOM-system.

How can I replace the debian by a fedora on my server ?

One of the features I want from fedora is selinux, which is compiled into the kernel

    "One of the features I want from fedora is selinux, which is compiled into the kernel" It's on Debian too. Just not enabled by default

    You might also be able to ask the provider if they'll install Fedora for you

You could chroot into a directory that has a Fedora installation.
E.g: https://www.maketecheasier.com/how-to-run-multiple-linux-distros-without-virtualization/

Alternatively, could you install Docker on that Debian server, and then just docker pull fedora?

    That's pretty interesting, but I do need some kernel features from fedora, such as selinux (and kvm, but it's on debian as well) Mar 26 at 6:44
