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

How you finding F15 after using it for a couple of months now? You get used to gnome3 yet?

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
