New to Fedora... Can I clean-install upgrade and keep all my packages?
I'm running Fedora 17 on a virtual box and want to know how, if possible, I can upgrade without having to reinstall all my packages I downloaded while using the older version of Fedora? I want to do a clean install but keep all my files and settings. How and what is the best way to save all your directories and files, packages, etc, but still have an otherwise brand-new operating system? Perhaps I'm asking too much?
I apologize for asking too much at once, but I've had my fair share of upgrade nightmares.
Thank all of you, if even one of you reads my message.
Linux and penguins for all,
