upgrade to Fedora 11 on my PS3 via preupgrade


Hello, i was trying to upgrade my fedora ppc on my playstation 3, with preupgrade but when i reboot preupgrade dosent recognize the HD and cant find install.img

I read that its bug in yaboot, so i install

"fedora-release-11-1.noarch.rpm" & "fedora-release-notes-11.0.0-2.fc11.noarch.rpm"

then update yaboot to the latest release "yaboot-1.3.14-13.fc11.ppc.rpm"

reboot and the same error is their.

any idea?

just do a fresh install .Fedora 11 is now using ext4 as the DEFAULT drive format .Except for the MBR or /boot partition ( depending on what you are using)

fedora 10 was using ext3 as the format

hmmm, so even for x86 upgrade via preupgrade will not work? cause of the deference of the file system. or it's just for the PPC
