Gitian for Fedora

These RPM packages should allow Gitian VM-based builds to work on Fedora 25.
  • apt-cacher-ng (shipped in Fedora)
  • python-vmbuilder [Link] - updated March 6th for Fedora 25
Updated: March 6th, 2017


  • Recently Fedora seems to have locked down /tmp mount permissions with options nodev and nosuid.  To use Gitian's make-base-vm as-is you could temporarily change the /tmp mount permissions.  After you install the base image you no longer need these less protective restrictions on /tmp.
    • Temporary workaround: mount -o remount,dev,suid /tmp
    • Undo workaround: mount -o remount,nodev,nosuid /tmp
