Update from FC6 to FC8 failed.


hello,

i've updated my fedora6 to fc8 with this commands :

Code:
yum update; yum clean all; yum update; yum clean all 
rpm -Uhv http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/fedora/linux/releases/8/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-8-3.noarch.rpm  http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/fedora/linux/releases/8/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-8.0.0-3.noarch.rpm
and then :

Code:
[root@ocata4888 local]yum -y update
but what I get is:

Code:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: /usr/bin/python2.4 is needed by package DenyHosts
Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.4 is needed by package DenyHosts
Error: Missing Dependency: wxGTK = 2.6.3-2.6.3.2.3.fc6 is needed by package wxGTK-devel
Error: Missing Dependency: wxGTK = 2.6.3-2.6.3.2.3.fc6 is needed by package wxGTK-gl
[root@ocata4888 local]#

What I can do? python2.4 does exist :/

That's a big step for an upgrade. Many changes will have taken place. Anyhow, Python2.4 and wxGTK are available here:http://rpm.pbone.net/ click the advanced rpm search link, click uncheck all then select fedora 6. Enter python 2.4 and download it then do the same for wxGTK. Manually install them and try your upgrade again.

Do a fresh install and stop fooling with upgrading from one version to another.

you may use
# yum -y update -x denyhosts

to skip denyhosts update.
You may remove denyhosts package , or try download and install required packages manually before doing the update.
It is possible that you`ll have to remove tens of packages (especially if they were from livna repo), but there is no problems to reinstall them later after the upgrade completed.

I used this approach to consequently update FC3 to F9, and always had a success, however i have to admit hat updating F8 to F9 is totally a mess. If you want to enjoy F9 you must do a fresh installation.

I've never been able to get an update to work. I don't even attempt it any more. I keep my /home directory on a separate volume/partition and always to a complete install.

As you have seen I have directly upgraded fc6 to fc8 with only two problems.


Removed both programs and installed again have solved both problems.
