How to yum my way from FC2 - FC3


Is it possible to upgrade from FC2 to FC3 using yum alone? And if so how would I go about doing that?

Thanks

sorry my fault !
Download the Fedora Core 3 version of fedora-release and yum from one of the Fedora Core mirrors.
I did this:
wget http://fedora.glorb.com/core/3/i386/...e-3-8.i386.rpm
wget http://fedora.glorb.com/core/3/i386/...1-3.noarch.rpm

I then installed them although i had to use the --force flag when installing the RPMs as /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources from the Fedora Core 3 fedora-release conflicts with up2date.

rpm -Uvh --force fedora-release-3-8.i386.rpm yum-2.1.11-3.noarch.rpm

Hope this helps a bit more!

Yes, it worked for me. This is my first yum upgrade and it worked flawlessly.

Slinky - thanks for the instructions. I, too, upgraded to FC3 via yum and it worked for me - no problems.
