How To Install Go on Fedora 37

Install Go on Fedora 37

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Go Programming Language on Fedora 37. For those of you who didn’t know, Go, also known as Golang is a modern, statically typed programming language that is designed to be simple, fast, and efficient. It provides a powerful concurrent programming model, efficient memory management, and a comprehensive standard library, making it a great choice for a wide range of 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 the step-by-step installation of the Go Programming Language on a Fedora 37.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 37.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Go Programming Language.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Go on Fedora 37

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 Programming Language on Fedora 37.

  • Method 1. Install Go using the default Fedora repository √

By default, the Golang package comes in the default Fedora 37 repository. Now run the following command below to install Go Programming Language to your Fedora system:

sudo dnf install golang

Verify that you’ve installed Go by opening a command prompt and typing the following command:

go version
  • Method 2. Install Go using the binary package √

Now run the following command below to download the binary package from the official page:

wget https://go.dev/dl/go1.20.linux-amd64.tar.gz

Then, extract the downloaded binary package using the following command:

sudo tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.20.linux-amd64.tar.gz

Next, add /usr/local/go/bin to the PATH environment variable:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin

Step 3. Create Golang Test Application.

Now we create a sample “Hello Meilana” program in Golang:

mkdir go-hello

Next, create a file:

nano go-hello/hello.go

Add the following line:

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
     fmt.Printf("Hello, Meilana from idroot.us\n") 

Save and close the file, then compile it with the go command:

go run hello.go

You should get the following greeting text:

Hello, Meilana from idroot.us

Congratulations! You have successfully installed GoLang. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing Go Programming Language on your Fedora 37 system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official Go website.
