Fedora 18, code named Spherical Cow, was officially released last week. It’s time to create a live usb again to give it a try.
Download the iso image
Just to be safe…
Get the checksum file
Import the keys
curl https://fedoraproject.org/static/fedora.gpg | gpg --import
sha256sum -c *-CHECKSUM
Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso: OK sha256sum: Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-KDE.iso: No such file or directory Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-KDE.iso: FAILED open or read sha256sum: WARNING: 20 lines are improperly formatted sha256sum: WARNING: 1 listed file could not be read
As long as you see OK next to the file you downloaded (see highlighted text), then you are good to go. Ignore the other files like the KDE ones since we didn’t download them.
Create the Live USB
sudo yum install liveusb-creator
Launch liveusb-creator and select the Fedora 18 iso image.
Click Create Live USB
Done! That’s it. Reboot from the Live USB.
