How To Install Go on Fedora 35

Install Go on Fedora 35

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Go Browser on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, Go is an open-source programming language developed by a team at Google that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Golang is very useful for writing lightweight microservices, infrastructure like networked servers, and also tools and systems for developers. It can also be used for generating APIs that interact with front-end applications.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step-by-step installation of the Go (Golang) programming language on a Fedora 35.

Install Go (Golang) on Fedora 35

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing Go on Fedora 35.

By default, Golang is not available on Fedora 35 repository. Now we download the latest version of Go from the official page using wget command:

wget https://go.dev/dl/go1.17.5.linux-amd64.tar.gz

Next, extract the archive downloaded:

sudo tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.17.5.linux-amd64.tar.gz

Step 3. Setup Go Environment Variables.

Now we need to set up two important variables for Go, GOROOT (PATH) and GOPATH. Add /usr/local/go/bin to your path variable:

export GOROOT=/usr/local/go
export GOPATH=$HOME/go
export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH

To apply the changes we have made above, run the following command:

source ~/.bashrc

Verifying the installation:

go version

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Go. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the Go (Golang) programming language on your Fedora 35 system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official Go website.
