Thumbs down Upgrade Fedora 10 to Fedora 11


I want to Upgrade my system from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 but when I use: yum -y update, my system comes up with a lot of dependency errors for Fedora 12, Fedora 13, and Fedora 14.

Right now I just want to upgrade to Fedora 11 and dont understand how I have managed to download packages for Fedora 11, 12, 13 and 14.

Any help to resolve this problem would be very much appreciated.

At the end of June, fedora 11 will be out of date and no longer receive patches or updates. So why bother ?

Smile hello

yum can not be used to update system on fedora10,because fedora11's iso list is not the same as before,you can use "preupgrade" tool to update.
here is the way:
1. yum update rpm
2. yum -y update
3. yum clean all
4. reboot
5. yum install preupgrade
6. preupgrade
7. select fedora11
8. click "Reboot"
you must be sure that your net is ok.
good luck!

if you are getting that then you turned on the RAWHIDE repo
rawhide is the testing and currently fedora 14 -alpha

if you have installed ANY software with that on your system might not be fixable ( no upgrade)
to check run
Code:
rpm -qa | grep fc11

rpm -qa | grep fc12

rpm -qa | grep fc13

i however would recommend doing a FULL 100% clean install of fedora 13

there have been Many,many,many changes in fedora since fedora 10 .Including using ext4 on the disk and not ext3

rpm -qa | grep fc11 returned just:

xvidcore-1.2.1-2.fc11.i586
a52dec-0.7.4-15.fc11.i586

Nothing was returned for rpm -qa | grep fc12 and rpm -qa | grep fc13,

What I don't understand is why when I want update the system returns a dependency errors for F11, F12, F13 and F14 like:

Error: Missing Dependency: libcdio.so.12(CDIO_12) is needed by package xine-lib-extras-freeworld-1.1.18.1-1.fc13.i686 (rpmfusion-free-rawhide)
Error: Missing Dependency: libiso9660.so.7 is needed by package xine-lib-extras-freeworld-1.1.18.1-1.fc13.i686 (rpmfusion-free-rawhide)

this is why

rpmfusion-free-rawhide

you have the TESTING fedora 13/14-alpha repo installed

i would still do a 100% fresh clean install on a reformatted disk .

Having enabled anything named 'rawhide' is asking for trouble !


First thing to do if you are serious about any update :
Delete those rawhide files in /etc/yum.repos.d/
or edit the 'enable' lines in the rawhide files from
enabled=1
to
enabled=0


EDIT : Disable all rpmfusion , all other "non Fedora.org"
at update time, ref. post # 8.

Also to clarify, rpmfusion is NOT an official Fedora repository, so you must have enabled it yourself for some reason.

I recommend disabling 3rd party repositories (like rpmfusion) before your upgrade. Better yet, back up your data and do a fresh reinstall as suggested above.

Also when you run "preupgrade" 3rd party repos and the packages installed from them will not be upgraded. I have run two preupgrades from Fedora 10 to Fedora 12 one on a desktop and the other a laptop.

You will also find that the installer will complain of insufficient space in "/boot" to complete the installation if you have more than one kernel installed so you will have to remove extra kernels etc from /boot.

After the install completes and you get to a working system open a terminal and run
Code:
rpm -qa | grep fc10
and you will probably find all of the 3rd party packages that did not get upgraded. What I did was run the yum gui yumex and selected all of the F10 packages for removal. Then reinstalled the extras for the release I upgraded to, which in my case was F12.

Here is a link to the Fedora wiki PreUpgrade

save your self a whole bunch of trouble

back up important data to an external drive or to dvd and do a 100% fresh clean install of fedora 13

you will NOT be able to use upgrade or preupgrade to jump 3 versions of fedora
