strange thing happens to my FC8 ...
I have run Fedora Core 8 for some time, no probs.
Decided to upgrade to FC9...
yum -y upgrade
(800 packages later, ready for ...)
yum install preupgrade
(ran this and then 1 hour later a reboot was offered...all seems fine??)
this time GRUB offers a "upgrade to Fedora 9 (sulphur)
selected this, I eventually get a FEDORA splash screen which appears for about 10 seconds then the display goes white, bright white, nothing else. Mouse frozen. No disk activity. No modem activity? Nothing. Just frozen. Cannot <ctrl-alt-backspace> or anything?? Had to press power button to reset the box. ohhh err!
the GRUB line added to menu.lst is:
title Upgrade to Fedora 9 (Sulphur)
kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade lang=en_US.UTF-8 keymap=us stage2=hd:sda1:/upgrade/stage2.img method=http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/os
weird? any ideas good folk?
if I boot my old kernel, all is well.
Has the upgrade been successful? How would I tell? I dont think it has gone too well?
