Problem in booting Fedora 10 after upgrading from Fedora 9
I am a Linux newbie. I recently upgraded fedora 9 to fedora 10 using preupgrade. The whole upgrade process went smoothly and I was able to use Fedora 10.
Later I used yum to update installed packages. But after a reboot, I am unable to boot. I get the following message :
Well, I know one or two people on this board claim to be able to do upgrades in place, (try the LQ search fn) but the usual advice is that a fresh install is much safer. Most people do this most of the time.
If you took a backup before the upgrade (& you should have), I'd recommend a fresh install.
Fedora is a bleeding edge distro and trying to upgrade as well is very likely to cause issues.
FWIW, RH don't support upgrades across their major versions either http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red...ted_Notes.html
I have finally solved this problem.
First I accessed my machine with a Fedora 9 live usb.
I noticed that kernel installed in my upgraded Fedora 10 machine was still that of fedora 9. I have no idea why.
But it gave an error that a new and latest kernel in already installed.
I used --oldpackage option with rpm and forced install it.
Then I used mkinitrd -v to create initial ramdisk image.
Rest was a simple change in Grub configuration to use the new vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-117.fc10.i686 to boot.
