Description of problem:
When doing an upgrade from RedHat Linux 9 to Fedora Core 1, the
Upgrade option does not allow Custom Upgrades where the user can
select which packages to upgrade. I have Ximian Gnome and some Fedora
project packages for RedHat 9, and I want to be able to select only
those packages that I wish I to upgrade, or see which packages will be
upgraded prior to the upgrade process.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Upgrade" from the Installation screen
2. Go to the Boot Loader section, select "No Change"
3. The installer goes to right to package selection and dependency
resolution. No custom screen is presented
Actual Results: RedHat 9 is detected, but no screen allowing me to do
a custom upgrade.
Expected Results: A screen allowing the user to do a Custom upgrade,
as in previous RedHat Linux releases.
The installer now just gets you upgraded and you can then do
customization once you're back in a full installed system environment.
I understand. :) However, I think being able to see what's going to
be upgraded would give peace of mind to some users, in case the
installer has to remove any third party RPMs that could result in
breaking a system.
