How to upgrade from FC2 to FC3

Recommended Posts

Hey, here is a neat way to upgrade from FC2 to FC3 without doing a clean install, but using apt-get.

 

First you must find the apt repositories from somewhere, I used this page right here: Fedora Apt/Yum Repositories list.

 

Now go to your server and doing as root and backup the apt sources.list

cd /etc/apt
cp sources.list sources.backup

 

Now, edit the sources.list. Remove everything inside and replace with the apt links from the Fedora Apt/Yum Repositories list.

 

Save and exit, then do an update and upgrade with apt-get.

 

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -y

 

This will take a while :) When finnished, reboot and you will have Fedora Core 3.

 

I dont know if this is a good way for doing it but it worked for me, so far so good.
