FC 3 upgrade from FC2


Hi,
does anyone know how to upgrade to FC3 from 3 using yum. Is it just
yum update
yum upgrade
or do I need to specify a new yum server?
has anyone done this yet?
thanks,

Download yum RPM package from FC3 repository .. you may want to download the fedora-release RPM too. This will update yum to the latest FC3 release .. make sure you're not in X .. and do 'yum upgrade'.

No, should grab them from the RPMS directory and not SRPMS .. I've done ISO upgrade from FC2 to FC3 but after few hiccups .. I did a fresh install..

I changed my yum.conf a while back to use other servers. I would like to upgrade from the official fc3 site but don't have those servers listed anymore.

Would someone please post the default yum.conf for fc3?

Thanks.

Just download the yum & fedora-release packages from FC3 from any repositories .. or just download it here:

ftp://ftp.telus.net/pub/fedora/linux...1-3.noarch.rpm
ftp://ftp.telus.net/pub/fedora/linux...e-3-8.i386.rpm

Do rpm -U on both of the above packages.. Yum will use mirror list instead of single repository site to grab the update. But beware, not all mirror sites have the current FC3 release.. so you may get 404 error messages.

so I can manually set the mirrors by editing the yum.conf file?
do i just go through the mirrors and find the right address?

Edit:

My yum.conf file contained entries that worked before, but do not work with the new version of yum. Fine. This is all well and good, comment them out of the yum.conf and the upgrade begins slowly... very slowly.

What I want to do instead is pick a mirror and use it explicitly rather than using the mirror list. I figure if I get a good mirror site, this should go fast.

Thanks.

J.
