Upgrde from FC6 to FC7 Failure Need help
I upgraded, or tried to upgrade from FC6 to FC7 using the DVD method, because I thought it was the least time consuming way to go, but I was wrong. After the upgrade the system does not have KDE any more and half of the installed packages are listed as .fc6 with dependency errors. I had force update to rpm and the libraries to allow me to use yum after the upgrade. Is there a way to upgrade the existing fc6 packages without having to format and start from scratch? I do have a backup of the important stuff.
Keep in mind that there are fc6-version packages in f7. Lots of them.
Regarding kde, etc. problems, try groupinstalling the kde group and other groups of interest:
You can manually work through the remaining problems by downloading the current f7 packages that have issues using yumdownloader and then "upgrading" them using rpm. Create a folder to work in and cd to that folder. Pick a problem package and "yumdownloader <package_name>", which downloads the latest f7 version of the package to the folder.
Then "rpm --test -Uvh --oldpackage *.rpm" to obtain a list of missing dependencies. The --oldpackage is used in case an installed package has a later version number than the f7 package currently available. Use yumdownloader to get the missing dependencies and repeat the --test until all dependencies are resolved. Then, "rpm -Uvh --oldpackage *.rpm" to upgrade/downgrade the appropriate packages.
If you hit one that you cannot resolve, then move on to another problem package and come back later to try it again.
