preupgrade doesn't upgrade the repositories
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:09:16 EST
Description of problem:
while upgrading my laptop from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 PR, I had these problems: it took ages to boot fedora 11, and I only got a black screen, with a console mouse..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
run preupgrade after you updated the packages
The last command opened a new window. Enable ‘Display unstable test releases above’, and select Rawhide.
the first reboot took ages to boot fedora 11, and I only got a black screen, with a console mouse..
nvidia drivers + proper gnome gui
open a console window [ctrl + alt + F2]
$ su -
* pw: *****
$ rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm
$ yum update
What version of preupgrade did you use? This should be fixed for people using preupgrade-1.1.0 and higher.
@wwoods, the latest version that was available around 06 may...
I don't know what the version was, since I updated to fedora 11
Run "rpm -q preupgrade". You probably have preupgrade-1.0.1-2.fc11.noarch.
If so, then this is a duplicate of bug 473966.
