View Full Version : Upgrading Fedora core1 to core 2
5th June 2004, 06:46 PM
I have Fedora core 1 installed on my Laptop, downloaded Fedora core 2 iso images from the site, and followed the instructions as below
mount -o loop -t iso9660 <filename> <mountpoint>
and executed the autorun.exe, however the installation gave me list of packages not installed in core 1 and cannot proceed further.
Did any one faced this similar problem.
Please let me know.

Yes, thats the procedure to add/remove packages. To upgrade, boot from the first CD like if you were to do a clean install, and choose the "upgrade" option in Anaconda (the setup program).
I just did it yesterday to one of my laptops and the upgrade went fine. But Gnome has a few problems. Since FC2 has a lot of changes and new architectures when compared to FC1, it'd be better to do a clean install. But you can always try the upgrade first, then if things go wrong, reinstall it from zero.

Thanks For the Reply.
Sorry my question was put in a wrong way.
I downloaded FC2-i386-disk1.iso image from the site and burned the CD, as per the instruction I mounted the CD
mount -o loop -t iso9660 /mnt/cdrom/FC2-i386-disk1.iso /tmp/Disk1
and executed the autorun but gave me error list of packages needs to be installed first, during FC1 installation I installed every thing.
The second approach I thought was,I rebooted my Laptop with CD of FC2- Disk1, I thought it would boot the machine from CD, which it didn't.
My question is is there some other way to burn FC2-Disk1 iso image on CD to make it bootable. so that I can install FC2 afresh.
Thanks in advance.

Jayesh - I downloaded the ISO files, checked their integrity against MD5SUM, started Nautilus, pointed to the disc 1 ISO file, right-clicked and selected Write to CD..., followed the prompts and the resulting CD was bootable.
Is there, perhaps, a BIOS setup option on your maching to enable boot from CD?

I got it. using cdrecord burns the cd bootable.
