Question Is "upgrade existing install" from RH 8 even worth trying?


Hi Folks,

Well, I'm about to take my server from RH 8.0 to Fedora 3. So, now, it gives me this somewhat interesting-sounding option rather than blowing away the prior install: Upgrade an Existing Installation (it figures out that it's RH 8).

So, obviously, I could try this and see if it works out and if it doesn't, then I can go back and do a clean install.

But...if anyone's had an awful experience with this approach, then I won't bother....

Suggestions?

John

i suggest that you do a clean install and forget about the upgrade if you can...
