update from fc5 last kernel to fc6 test 2


Hello,

I was surprised that i can't find anywhere how explains howto upgrade/update
from FC5 to FC6 ... -(maybe cause i am newbie)

maybe, ... is it possible to FC6 test 2 or i have to wait for releasing FC6 final?

i like to test FC6 test 2, but i dont want to install it from scratch ...
( i want to stay with my config files, etc...)

howto update from FC5 to Fc6 ?

using yum ? with special params?

updating any rpm file ?

thank you

It's the same as with any other release (only test versions are never bug-free).

Most used way:
Download the the ISOs, burn them and start the installation.
During setup, select "upgrade existing system" and continue.

Unless you like fixing many problems, don't use yum for this.

I'll personally wait for the official release...
