July 1 2008: Fedora 9 for ia64 released!! See the announcement and release notes .


This page describes the ia64 (aka Itanium) variant of Fedora. The ia64 CPU is used in high end servers built by HP , SGI, NEC, Fujitsu, Unisys, Hitachi and Bull. This is not to be confused with x86_64 or em64t which are 64 bit extension of the x86 processor. While early versions of ia64 had the ability to run x86 binaries current models only allow x86 binary compatibility via software emulation.

We have a list of workarounds for some known issues . Please look over this list if you run into problems. If your problem is not resolved by the items there please let us know.


We currently have 3 Intel systems which were donated by the Itanium Solutions Alliance (ISA) for our build servers. We will soon be adding a MSA60 disk array and P800 SmartArray controller donated by HP to fulfill our storage needs.
