Did you try booting the installation disk? For a full release, anaconda will usually give an upgrade or clean install option. See if the beta gives you the same.

I doubt you can do that until F9 goes live. Not sure, but I'd be surprised if they would create a situation where an errant upgrade request took someone to a beta

I'm not 100 percent but I think you would need to change your Yum repositories to Rawhide or whatever F9 is.

You may want to backup your F8 first in case things don't work out. If you do try it, let us know how it turns out, I have F8 also and may try upgrading to F9 beta.

Thnx.

Wink Do you hate Cds or DVDs ?

Do you hate Cds or DVDs ?

Wait for a cd/Dvd version..!

You could use them for rescue operations too..i too think it's the safest and easiest way for upgrading..anyway,i use FC8 64bit and feel very well with it so,if not for hardware problems,i don't see any need/reason for making an upgrade to a BETA version-which of course MIGHT BE less stable than a final one !

Bye !

Using beta's is good as long as you report problems, bugs and issues so they can be addressed before the final version is released.

That's one reason to use a beta version!
