Download links:

i386: Fedora-16-i686-Live-SoaS
x86-64: Fedora-16-x86_64-Live-SoaS
  • This tutorial is set up for a 4 GB USB stick or VirtualBox 4 GB hard disk install.
See custom layout screens below. It may be adapted for a regular hard disk.

Name Screen

  • First Screen that appears when boot is done.
The Name and colors screens set the individual SSH ID for the user and only run once.
(Enter Name you want to use.)



  • Chose colors for your Sugar learner avitar 
Click on the avitar to change colors - repeat to change again.
Click (done) when you are happy with it.


Home view

  • Sugar starts at the Home view (F3).
Terminal application is selected.


  • Click on [#_] Become root



  • Enter the command liveinst, which starts the Anaconda installer.


  • Language


Type of install

  • Choose basic storage devices.
  • Click [Next].


  • Hostname selection


  • Time zone selection



  • Enter it twice.


Custom Layout



  • Select edit /sda, or the disk where you want to install Sugar.


  • Create:
File System Type: BIOS Boot Size (MB): 2
Mount Point: / File System Type: ext4 Size (MB): 2500 (or space available)
File System Type: swap Size (MB): 500 for hard disk installation. (Swap is not recommended for USB flash drives.)
(Fedora 16 (and later) requires a BIOS boot partition in the default configuration.)
  • Click [OK].
  • [Next]


Copying to hard drive



  • Finished
  • [Reboot]


  • Shut down the computer.
  • Reboot from the USB device or hard drive.
  • On reboot, you will enter "firstboot" to register yourself and your Sugar Learner colors.
This is similar to the name and color screens when the Live CD/USB first booted.
