Preupgrade deprecated for Fedora 18
Preupgrade does not at present and will not ever work for upgrading to Fedora 18, or any version after that. It will be replaced with a new tool. As of October 2012, the only working method for upgrading to Fedora 18 is yum.

This page now contradicts to previous message!

Russian documentation says that "yum is not recommended way, use PreUpgrade"!
I've just started upgrade using preupgrade and now i'm dead-locked on anaconda graphical startup.
