Description Christian SCHLATTER 2007-06-15 06:29:47 EDT
Description of problem:
I want to upgrade my Fedora Core 4 installation to Fedora 7 using the bootable
DVD. After configuration of the boot options, anaconda starts to look for
package dependencies and stops with an unhandled exception.

I too have this same problem trying to upgrade from fc3 to f7.  All these
reports seem to be tied to kernel.i686.  Since mine stopped in the "resolve
dependencies" area, I assume that is true of all occurrences, given that the
trace back looks almost identical.

A work around would be most welcome.
Comment 7 George Anzinger 2007-07-23 21:34:01 EDT
I don't know if this work for all of these but, I got the update to work by
using rpm to remove all the kernels save the one I actually was booting.  Do:
rpm -q kernel

then rpm -e kernelxxx where the xxx is the kernel to remove.  Do NOT remove the
one grup is booting (look in the grup.conf file in /boot/grub/ or some such).
Comment 8 David Cantrell 2007-09-11 17:45:53 EDT
Upgrades are supported from the previous release to the current release, not
from a far back release to the current one.
