In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Julia Programming Language on Fedora 39. Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic language for technical computing. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library.
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 Julia Programming Language on a Fedora 39.
Before diving into the installation process, let’s ensure that you have everything you need:
- A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 39.
- It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
- You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. Fedora 39 provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
- You’ll need an active internet connection to download Julia and its dependencies.
non-root sudo useror 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 Julia Programming Language on Fedora 39
Step 1. First, update your base system with the latest available packages. This can be done by running the following command:
sudo dnf clean all sudo dnf update
Step 2. Installing Julia Programming Language on Fedora 39.
For Fedora users, you can install Julia by typing the following command in the terminal:
sudo dnf install julia
Step 3. Accessing Julia on Fedora.
After the installation, you can start the Julia REPL (read-eval-print loop), which is an interactive session, by invoking the
julia command in the terminal.
Now, let’s look at a simple Julia example. We’ll create a function that calculates the factorial of a number:
function factorial(n) if n == 0 return 1 else return n * factorial(n-1) end end
You can call this function with an integer argument to calculate its factorial. For example,
factorial(5) will return
Remember, Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Julia. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the Julia Programming Language on your Fedora 39 system. For additional Apache or useful information, we recommend you check the official Julia website.
