First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.

VDMFEC implements Block ECC using a Forward Error Correction (FEC) code based on Vandermonde (VDM) matrices in GF(2^8) due to Luigi Rizzo. Given the FEC parameters K and N, with N greater than K, N blocks are written for every K input blocks in such a way that any K blocks are sufficient to reconstruct the data. That is, up to N - K blocks out of every group of N blocks may be lost without loss of data. Its primary application is intended to be in recovering data from unreliable media such as diskettes.
You now have a full guide on how to install
yum package managers.
