Thumbs down Fedora 15 Upgrade not found


I performed the Fedora 15 Upgrade from Fedora 14 which worked fine except when I reboot the system does not find Fedora 15 i.e. I see the Fedora 14 Kernel and not the Fedora 15 Kernel in the reboot sequence. Any help I can get to fix this would be much appreciated

I don't really understand how that's possible. what does "rpm -q fedora-release" say? If that's 15 and you do a yum update and there's nothing there everything would be fine.

my 15 system is running "Fedora (2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64)" according to my grub.conf. what does yours look like?

rpm -q fedora-release returns:

fedora-release-14-1.noarch

My problem is that I performed the Fedora 15 Upgrade using Pre-upgrade, after which when the system rebooted I expected to see Fedora 15, but my system reloads Fedora 14 and I don't understand why. I do see one error message which is a warning saying that I have "Decrepated Config File". I don't understand what that means or how to fix it.

sounds like you've not done the upgrade at all to me. what happens if you try to do it again?

What happens when you do a ls -d /lib/modules/*? You should see a list of your installed kernels:
Code:
$ ls -d /lib/modules/*
/lib/modules/2.6.38.6-27.fc15.x86_64  /lib/modules/2.6.38.7-30.fc15.x86_64  /lib/modules/2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64
Are you sure that your /boot partition was the one that the F15 installation used? Have you done a ls /boot/vmlinux* to see if the F15 boot loader is in that directory? If it's not there, do a sudo updatedb to update the mlocate data base, and then a locate -r 'vmlinux[^/]*$' to see what you have installed, and where it is installed.

did you read the fedora install guide ?
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...grade-x86.html
to quote --
Quote:
While upgrading from Fedora 14 is supported, you are more likely to have a consistent experience by backing up your data and then installing this release of Fedora 15 over your previous Fedora installation.

To upgrade from Fedora 14 you should bring your system up to date before performing the upgrade.

This recommended reinstallation method helps to ensure the best system stability possible.
for "preupgrade"
did you fallow the guide page ?
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...e/ch19s02.html
or the 14 to 15 wiki
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_use_PreUpgrade
-- warning --
there are NO guarantees this will work !
a clean NEW install is still better.

ls -d /lib/modules/* returns:

/lib/modules/2.6.34.7-61.fc13.i686 /lib/modules/2.6.35.6-48.fc14.i686

Which I assume is the previous upgrades

do a 100% clean NEW install of fedora15
reformat the drive to ext4
and do a new install .

Thumbs down Fedora 15 Upgrade using Preupgrade



Although I tried to upgrade from Fedora 14 to 15 using Pre-Upgrade, my system does not find Fedora 15 at the end when the Pre-up-grade sequence.

On the very last step when Pre upgrade reboots my computer it just goes straight back into Fedora 14. No choices (Fedora 14 or Fedora 15 Upgrade Kernel) are shown

Any help to fix this problem would be much appreciated.

try using yum instead
Code:
sudo yum update
sudo yum clean all
sudo yum --disableplugin=presto releasever=15 distribution-synchronization

just use "yum" to perform upgrade....its very simple and less time consuming

BTW why there is another post required....??
