Question Problems after PreUpgrade to Fedora 9

I just run preupgrade on Fedora 8.
After reboot, it enters "Upgrade to Fedora 9". Then it begins to download packages etc. When the progress bar reached almost the end, it prompts some file was corrupt and reboot would make the system inconsistent. Unfortunately, I clicked "reboot" instead of "abort"

After I reboot again, the "Upgrade to Fedora 9" boot option still be there. Is this normal?

Anyway, the new boot item "Fedora 9" appears. So I booted into it. Unfortunately, the X server fails to work: my LCD blinks for 10 secs and then comes the console. No any other error messages. My video card is Nvidia 8500.

I tried to use yum, but it says has some problem.

Any suggestions? Thanks

I copied some lib files to /usr/lib to make yum work. Under Fedora 9, yum still grabs packages of Fedora 8. The system is a mess now.

What should I do now? Thanks

This happened to me too.
I used yum to upgrade 7 --> 8, and figured that preupgrade might be better.
Big mistake.

I can't even use rpm or yum, every time it barks about "" cannot load.

How did you get yum to work?
