View Full Version : How to uninstall F10
27th November 2008, 10:17 PM
Is there a simple way to uninstall F10 and go back to F9? I am experiencing too many issues with F10 that F 9 was great - mouse and keyboard not properly functioning.
Once I get into F10 since my mouse does not work properly nor my keyboard (double entry keys like ff ii etc so that I can not log in.
Does anyone have any suggestions? F 9 worked great.

Not really. Not that I know of, anyway. You would delete the Fedora 10 partitions and re-install Fedora 9. To delete the Fedora 10 partitions, you can use any of these... The GParted LiveCD.
Choose the "Remove Linux partitions on selected drives and create default layout" partition option in Anaconda while re-installing Fedora 9 (if no other Linux systems are installed on the same drive, of course).
The disk druid in Anaconda while re-installing Fedora 9 with the "Create custom layout" partition option.
fdisk in the running Fedora 10 system (Fedora will allow you to destroy its partitions with fdisk while it is running).
fdisk in linux rescue with any Fedora disk.
P.S.: I will miss Fedora 9, too. But lately, I say that for every new release. Fedora 9 was the hardest of all time for me to get under control. I have no reason to expect anything better from Fedora 10 (yet).
P.P.S.: Your situation is also why I never upgrade install. I always install the new versions alongside my current version and use them both for a while. In fact, I keep every version to the very end of its life cycle. Next month, I will be giving Fedora 10 the space currently used by Fedora 8. Just something to think about.

There is no reason to remove any partitions, use gparted, not for any of 3 other options, unless it needs to be resized.
Simply telling the F9 installer to use the existing F10 partition after formatting it should do it.
