Updating fedora using yum has elizabeth reaser dating
These steps are documented in the Fedora 17 instructions.
After that, you can continue upgrading to a later release as usual.
After the conversion, the system needs to be immediately updated to Fedora 17.
No packages from Fedora 16 or Fedora 15, or older rawhide packages must be installed any more.
As older kernel packages are not removed on upgrade, this can prevent upgrading from Fedora 13 or earlier directly to Fedora 16.
If you run into this problem, upgrade to Fedora 14 or later and then remove all kernel packages older than package removed.
You should seriously consider stopping now and upgrading to Fedora 17 using the installer.
On a BIOS install, grub will still be installed to the MBR and booting should still work.
On BIOS installs, it is strongly recommended that you follow the instructions below to switch to grub2.
Here are the steps to prepare your system, to convert it, and to be able to continue updating your installed system with yum: Download and install the most recent dracut packages: If your system has a split-off /usr, a separate mount point, and you don't know the kernel command line parameter to add, you can also try (dracut tries to generate them internally), but you have to install at least dracut-018.
- remove “ro” (read only) - append “rw” (read write) to let dracut mount your root filesystem writeable - remove “rhgb” (Red Hat graphical boot) to disable the graphical bootsplash - append “rd.info” to get a more verbose output from dracut - append “rd.convertfs” to enable the /usr-move conversion script in dracut - append “enforcing=0” to disable SELinux enforcement - append "3" to boot to a console (booting to X is only going to complicate matters) During bootup, dracut will now convert your filesystem, and /lib, /lib64, /bin and /sbin should then all be symbolic links to the corresponding directories in /usr.
