In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Python on Fedora 37. For those of you who didn’t know, Python is one of the most popular programming languages, and it’s used for web development, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and more. It’s a high-level language with clean syntax, and it’s easy to learn. Python also has a large standard library that provides built-in modules and functions for various tasks such as file handling, networking, regular expressions, and much more. Additionally, Python has a vast ecosystem of third-party libraries that can be easily installed and used to extend the language’s functionality.
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 Python 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 Python.

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 Python 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 sudo dnf install gcc
Step 2. Installing Python Programming Language on Fedora 37.
By default, Python is available in the default repositories of Fedora 37, so you can install it using the
dnf package manager. To install Python, run the following command below:
sudo dnf install python3
This command will install the latest version of Python 3 available in the Fedora 37 repositories. If you require a specific version, you can specify it by typing the following command:
sudo dnf install python3.x
You can verify that Python is installed by running the following command:
Step 3. Installing Python PIP on Fedora.
PIP (Python Package Installer) is a tool used to install and manage Python packages. To install PIP, you can use the
dnf package manager by running the following command below:
sudo dnf install python3-pip
You can verify that PIP is installed by running the following command:
Once the installation is complete, you can use the PIP command to install Python packages:
pip3 install package_name
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Python. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing Python programming language on your Fedora 37 system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official Python website.
