Boot failure after upgrading FC5 TR3 to FC5 Official Release
 
Hello:

I used "yum update" to upgrade from FC5 Test 3 to FC5 Official Release. It seemed to work well until I rebooted and chose the new release in GRUB. The choice said something like:

2.6.15-1.2064_FC6

which I questioned immediately. Why the _FC6? Is this right? Probably not, because after choosing this, the system boots and then my desktop background from my formerly working Test Release 3 pops up -no login screen, nothing. Just the desktop background with a bunch of blurred, jarbled blotches across the top.

So then I selected the last working kernel of Test Release 3 from GRUB. Same darn thing! Just the desktop background with a bunch of blurred, jarbled blotches across the top.

Am I cooked here?

Thanks,
Scott

Their exist RPMS for doing this.
Your problem exist cause you're upgrading a test version resulting in a new test version(FC6) and not "FC5 final".

Please keep in in mind that test versions are only meant for testers and developers.

Whoops
 
I know the test versions are for testers. That's what I essentially was. I guess I'll be reloading Linux now.

Did you install the fedora-release rpm from the FC5 stable mirrors. My guess is you didn't and thats why FC is still using development release mirrors. I did the upgrade from the development release using yum and everything went fine.
