Cannot use fc 9 kernel after upgrade from fc 5 to fc 9
 
Halo, anyone here ever upgrade Fedora Core 5 to Fedora Core 9?
It's been 2 days now that I've been trying to upgrade. Here are what I
did :

# yum clean all

# yum update

then I got info that libcrypto.so.6, libssl.so.6 & libtermcap.so.2
which was needed by ckermit package and mozilla = 37:1.7.13-1.1.fc5
(it really had the equal sign) which needed by mozilla-devel was not
installed. When I checked, looks like libcrypto.so.6, libssl.so.6 &
libtermcap.so.2 are inside openssl-0.9.8a-5.4 package so I query the
installed rpms

# rpm -qa|grep openssl

# rpm -qa|grep mozilla

and I got that openssl-0.9.8a-54 and mozilla-1.7.13-1.1.fc5 was
already installed.

So I removed ckermit and mozilla-devel then do another yum update
again and this time everything went well, total approximate download
were 2 GB.

I left my laptop all night to download and install and in the morning
everything had completed, the display was not the usual fc 5 anymore
but when I restarted my laptop it still access to fc5.

# uname -a
Linux xxx.xxx.com 2.6.20-1.2320.fc5 #1 Tue Jun 12 18:50:38 EDT 2007
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Boot option check gave me the information that fc9 exists. Below is
what's in /boot/grub/menu.lst:

title Fedora (2.6.25.4-30.fc9.i686)
root (hd0,4)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.i686 ro
root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.i686.img

title Fedora Core (2.6.20-1.2320.fc5)
root (hd0,4)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.20-1.2320.fc5.i686 ro
root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.20-1.2320.fc5.img

when I force to use fc 9 I got these error message :

Unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01)
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
Mount failed for selinuxfs on /selinux: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory

Inside /boot there are already kernel fc9 files such as
config-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.i686, initrd-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.i686.img,
System.map-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.i686 and vmlinuz-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.i686

/etc/fstab seems ok

finally I tried to update once again in text-mode:

# yum clean all

# yum update

there are about 150 MB files to download and after that there are lots
of add-on for mozilla installed, which I never add it previously.

Try to install kernel again:

# yum install kernel

and I got info that the latest kernel version already installed.

Anyone know what's the problem and how can I use fc 9? Thx.

Wouldn't it be better to do a fresh install? I've read about
problems upgrading from f8 to f9. I mean, f5 - f9 is quite a big leap:)

I upgraded from fc3 to fc 9, in short, fc9 does not seem to take any notice of the packages you have installed...


The lib errors you are getting can be resolved by re-installing the package you are trying to run!


Linux aint what it used to be ;(
