As you download and use Rocky Linux, the Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation invites you to be a part of the community as a contributor . There are many ways to contribute to the project, from documentation, QA, and testing to coding changes for SIGs, providing mirroring or hosting, and helping other users.

What's the difference between the ISOs?

Various installation images are available for installing Rocky Linux. Which image you need to download depends on your installation environment and use-case.

Boot

Used to install the operating system from another source (such as a HTTP repository of the binary files). Can also be used to enter Rescue Mode.

Minimal

The aim of the minimal image is to install a very basic Rocky Linux system, with the minimum of packages needed to have a functional system. A preselected set of packages will be installed on your system. Everything else needs to be installed using dnf. The set of packages installed by this image is identical to the one installed when choosing the group named "Minimal" in the full DVD image.

DVD

A full installation that contains the BaseOS and AppStream repositories and allows you to complete the installation without additional repositories. Installing Rocky Linux from the DVD ISO is the easiest and most common method of performing a standard Rocky Linux 8 installation.
