Cannot upgrade from LiveCD
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:50:20 EST
Description of problem:
The only available CD image of Fedora 7 test 4 is a LiveCD, which you can
install from. However, you cannot upgrade from this LiveCD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7 test 4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have an installed Fedora Core 6
2. Download and burn Fedora 7 test 4 LiveCD
3. Boot it
No possibility of upgrading, only removing all partitions and reinstalling.
Possibility of upgrading my old installation.
The way that the live CD installation method works, there isn't any possible way
to do an upgrade; what happens is that we dd the filesystem image from the live
image over and make it the root filesystem. This works less well for upgrading :-)
You can run anaconda by hand as
if you want to do a more normal network install (and thus get upgrade
capability) rather than the live CD install method. But at that point, you're
about as well off to just download the boot.iso to start your upgrade from.
Thanks for the quick feedback.
In that case, documentation on how to upgrade is _seriously_ needed. I will
proceed with a network upgrade instead.
Possibly a link to starting anaconda as a network upgrade would be in order on
