For some reason I'm having trouble mounting my USB stick, maybe it's because I'm in CLI-only using runlevel 3. Otherwise I'd pipe the results into a text file and post it here.

Here's my yum.conf:



In "/etc/yum.repos.d", I do have 9 .repo files listed.
To mount your usb stick follow these steps
su to root
type fdisk -l and record the identifier for the usb stick
cd /mnt
mkdir flashdrive
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1(for example) flashdrive/
and now it is mounted

Well, I guess you have 3 options:

1) Upgrade to 9
2) Perform a fresh install of 8. You can't upgrade over your current system as any newer rpm's won't get updated.
3) Download ALL of the required FC8 rpms or install them from the cd/dvd at once. (i.e. rpm --force -Uvh package1.rpm package2.rpm ...)

To mount your usb drive from a CLI:

Plug it in and wait 20-30 seconds. Then run the command:

Code:
dmesg | tail
You should see a line that says something like:
Code:
sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
Code:
sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mount/point
Obviously, /mount/point will have to be a directory that already exists.

How is 9??? I mean, is it buggy? I generally try to install a new one after it's been out a couple of months. I have no problem going with the latest/greatest though.

I had some issues, but was able to iron them out in 1/2 a day.

1) The MGA driver in my system isn't supported so I had to force install xorg and some dependent rpms from fc8. There may be other drivers that aren't supported as the new xorg has made some major api changes (basically getting rid of all references to xfree86). Since this is an old driver, it was still expecting those api's.
2) After I installed and rebooted, I ran yum update to make sure all the packages from my other repo's were updated. One system had an additional 185 packages to install, the other 445. Why weren't they install during the install instead of having to be redownloaded from the net?
3) When I rebooted after the update, grub hung. The fix is simple, reboot from the dvd in rescue mode, and run "chroot /mnt/sysimage" and then "grub-install /dev/sd??" pointing it to the correct drive. This happened on 2 systems (both using the Livna repo in addition to Fedora repo).
4) I use KDE and the new kde task panel went away and there isn't an obvious way to get it back. Had to basically remove all the kde configuration files from my home directory and then reconfigure things after logging back in.

That was yesterday. Haven't had any problems today.

p.s. The 1/2 day was mostly spent trying to get X working, and is chronicled here.

In fedora-development.repo and fedora-updates-testing.repo set enabled to 0. They are enabled, and that is probably why you got the FC9 packages.

I did this... It went quicker, and failed quicker. Here's the output of my "yum update" piped into a text file...

edit: removed... for some reason it didn't pick up the failure.

I did this:

Code:
yum update > failed_yum.txt
But, the failures (3 of them) didn't appear. There were many less failures this time though, so I feel we're getting closer.

The errors are for missing dependencies:

libdvdread.so.4 needed by gstreamer-plugins-ugly
libexempi.so.3 needed by gstreamer-plugins-bad
fedora-release >=9 needed by livna-release

I removed the gstreamer packages, and so it's now only failing on the livna-release. Can that be yanked as well?

Edit... it's gone. So is a xine package that was causing trouble. I ran "yum update" again, and it got all the way to the point of asking if I wanted to continue... I agreed, and it's updating.

Now there are only 64 packages to be updated, compared to the over 600 when the "development" and "testing" repos were enabled.


Edit/update #2...
During the update/debug process, it appears everything failed, due to needing libssl.so.7.

:-(

I'm tired of this, LOL...

I'm reinstalling it from DVD right now.

I will go and disable the development and testing repos as soon as it's up. I'll hold off on Fedora 9 for right now.

Thanks to all who helped!
