how would you know if after the yum update, you are already using the fecora core 3?
Look in /etc/fedora-release .

Whew, seems like recently I just put on C2...I'm gonna wait before I start looking into C3. In the mean time, I can see what you all have to say about it.

well i'm gonna try again tomorrow; FC3 has 2.6.7, and it also boots alot faster than FC2 or Suse 9.1 Pro does for me. hopefully i can get up2date working properly.

oh yeah: do they not change the version number in the Gnome info window? Because it still says 2.6......

No, only an image to fit on a usb stick or such....
http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/cor...386/os/images/



Well I re-installed, and this time I noticed an option whether or not to install SELinux. So now up2date runs fine, but it still says no GPG sig after every download.

Also, on startup I can't select the new kernel that was installed. What do I need to do in order to use the newest kernel.

Well, I figured out to edit grub.conf in /boot/grub and changed the timeout value from 2 to 10, so I would have time to actually choose

Chris...

As for the GPG keys, as root, run the following...
Code:
# wget ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub...s/RPM-GPG-KEY*

# rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY*
You should now be able to use up2date with the official RedHat Fedora server without the GPG error.

As for the new kernel, it's s'posed to set up GRUB to allow you to boot it. Check that it is installed with "# rpm -qa | grep kernel". That will list any package installed that has the word "kernel" in the name. If the new kernel isn't listed (should be "kernel-2.6.7-1.478"), it's not installed. Try up2date again, or better yet, use yum... "# yum update" should do the trick. I've found yum servers are faster and more reliable than up2date.

Unhappy FC3 T1 Install bombs, lockup & 1970ish snowy screen

I have an AMD Athlon 64 system (x86_64) that has been very stable on FC2 and I thought I would give FC3 T1 a look. When I attempted to install by booting to disk 1 (I downloaded the ISOs) I immediately get a lock-up and a snowy screen image. I thought maybe I had a bad image so I tried downloading from a different mirror with the same result. Has anyone else run into this issue? My Gigabyte MOBO has the NVIDIA Nforce chipset and an GeForce FX 5200 Graphics card. I am thinking this may be graphics driver related or possibly something with the bus. Any input?

Thanks,

Sliceman

I had the same problem, Im also running the AMD64 on a MSI K8N Neo board with the NVIDIA Nforce3 chipset and a ATI Radeon 9600 card. I had to fool FC3 installer. I boot off the FC2 DVD then pop it out (right before you hit <enter> to install) and replace it with the FC3 CD....it was all gravey after that.

So far only problem Im encountering is up2date...it keeps stalling, however yum seems to be yummin' away at the moment...hopefully it all goes thu. I'll keep you posted.

How you know what version you run...

Simply do:
cat /etc/redhat-release
it will showthe version of fedora you run
