This is what the up2date program does.

Comment 2 acount closed by user 2003-06-13 17:12:56 UTC
I  was speaking about to update between redhat releases ex: from rh 6.2 to 9

Comment 3 acount closed by user 2003-06-20 19:14:51 UTC
to be clearer, something like debian way:
"apt-cdrom add && apt-get dist-upgrade" but with anaconda

Comment 4 acount closed by user 2003-09-25 22:26:50 UTC
we will see if, now with Fedora, we are able to do it with yum.

Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2003-10-11 18:46:52 UTC
upgrading from rhl 6.2 to 9 will cause an enormous amount of suffering I think.

It's possible but you're going to have to fudge some packages.
