how I upgraded from Fedora 14 to Fedora 15


Recommended Posts

backup your data first then... login as root and do a yum -y update, that tells fedora to update itself

 

[anyweb@localhost ~]$ su -

Password:

[root@localhost ~]# yum -y update

 

then get a few necessary F15 rpm's from the nearest mirror (i chose a swedish mirror as i live in sweden)

 

wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-15-1.noarch.rpm
wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-15.0.0-1.fc15.noarch.rpm
wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-rawhide-15-1.noarch.rpm

 

and then install them

 

rpm -Uvh fedora-release-notes-15.0.0-1.fc15.noarch.rpm fedora-release-15-1.noarch.rpm fedora-release-rawhide-15-1.noarch.rpm 

 

then clean the yum data

 

yum clean all

 

and update

 

yum update

 

 

if you get any conflicts reported, then remove the package like so

 

yum remove gnome-applet-vm

 

the install will take some time, take a break,

once done, check the version

 

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release

Fedora release 15 (Lovelock)

 

and then reboot

 

reboot

yes i'm used to it and like it actually, took some time to get used to

it is slower than gnome 2 however but aside from that, after i added my 'fixes' it's great

 

and suspend finally works 100% now also, so upgrading to f15 was a good move
