Fedora 11 preview not shown in preupgrade list
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:08:48 EST
On a Fedora 10 system I installed preupgrade with 'yum install preupgrade' and ran it. It has a checkbox to 'show alpha/beta releases'. However even when that option is selected, the Fedora 11 beta release is not included in the list. The only option is Rawhide.
(If it has been decided that the Fedora 11 beta will not be available with preupgrade, then the tool should still show it in the dropdown list but greyed out or otherwise marked unavailable.)
The same applies to the Fedora 11 preview release. It does not appear in preupgrade on my Fedora 10 system, although the release notes say you can use preupgrade to install it.
I think this bug is just reporting confusing user interface text. The UI should have some explanation that when it says 'Rawhide' is available for upgrading, this really means the current preview release (if a preview release is available). Or better still, display the correct release name in the dialogue box.
Hopefully when a Fedora 12 preview release comes out this can be displayed better?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
