View Full Version : FC4 Test3 64bit version
30th May 2005, 03:08 PM
I have sucessfully installed FC4 Test3 64 bit version. Now I want to update it to the current level using Yum. Here is the output from the command yum update:
Install 9 Package(s)
Update 229 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)
Total download size: 458 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Check Error: file /usr/share/man/man8/dmraid.8.gz from install of dmraid-1.0.0.rc8-FC4_5 conflicts with file from package dmraid-1.0.0.rc7-4_FC4
Before downloading, I executed the command: yum update yum which I believe points yum to the proper repositories.
It took about nine hours to download the 229 + 9 packages. I want to preserve these downloaded rpms. Comments and suggestions welcome,

Use the command:
yum -y --exclude=dmraid-1.0.0.rc8-FC4_5 update
Was in the same boat with amd64 install last night and this went fine. The packages you have already downloaded are safely stored in the yum tmp dir so you won't have to redownload them. Good Luck!

Thanks Kennon. As you already know, your suggestion solved my problem.

Purely informational - but I'm using FC4T3 AMD64 too.
Would be good to do a survey of registered users to see what installs of Fedora we run. Especially to see the percentage of AMD64 hardware users that still run i386 installs . . .
Can the forums do vote surveys?

tried the amd64 build. had problems with missing or broken libs. ut04 and D3 refused to run even after getting all the missing stuff installed and sym linked. Droped back to i386 and so far no problems. Once the build is final and I find a better comfort level in linux i'll give 64 a shot again. Right now i cant tell if a bug is from beta, 32-64 bit snafu, or just needs the right config.

Hmmm. I have been running the 64-bit build all along and aside from a few --exception=xxx switches in my yum command I have had no issues with the amd64 build. I am running an Asus A8V Deluxe mobo, AMD64 3500+ (venice) cpu, onboard sound (AC'97), onboard LAN (Yukon), Maxtor 200Gb SATA/150 (fedora core4 t3), Western Digital 120Gb ATA/133 (windowsXP), Leadtek Geforce 6800GT. I have been doing an "everything" install since test1. I have formatted and performed fresh installs with each new test version. I will admit though that I don't run a lot of games on my linux partition. I did install enemy territory and got it running using 32-bit emulation but sound never worked. Video was fine. The only issue I run into is occassionally the 64-bit ports of apps comes quite a bit later than the i386 on repos like freshrpm and Dag. I think this will change though over the course of the next 2 years though as more and more people start buying 64-bit PC's now that WinBlowzXP has a 64-bit version.
Shoot, even the NVIDIA binary driver works "right out of the box" and that is a first for me across like 5 computers, 3 years and 4 versions of Fedora. :)

I tried running 64 bit FC4T2 and it worked fine until one kernel update kept rebooting my PC. I never got FC3 64 bit to install. Must be something with the hardware. I can't wait until the 13th to try FC4-64. Hopefully I will never have to look at another windows machine again.

ive been running FC4Test3-x86_64 since it was released and its been rock solid. FC4 should improve upon that and hopefully be even better, so anxiously i continue to wait :)

I'm running FC4T3 (x86_64 at home and i386 on the laptop) and it's worked pretty well. I have one issue with the clock running too fast, but I have a workaround for it so it's not a killer.
Actually, I think I'm going to keep the laptop on rawhide as it's mostly a development machine anyway and doesn't need to be too terribly stable.

I have one issue with the clock running too fast this hasnt happened on any of my boxes but i hear its a APIC problem. if you disable it then the clock goes back to normal. in your boot line in grub add noapic somewhere in there around rhgb.

I've been trying to get Fedora Core 4 - Test 3 installed on my Asus A8V for the last few days. I do not use, nor do I have enabled, any of the SATA stuff. I do have an LSI logic 21320 card with three drives hanging off of it, 2 one channel 1, 1 on channel 2. The problem I am having is that on install, when anaconda loads the mptscsih driver, the system locks. I've done the noprobe option and added the drivers manually with the same result. I've tried different distro's and I have the same problem. The SCSI card is configured at default values. I'm fairly new to install problems; most of my other computers loaded linux fine. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Yep, that's the workaround I'm using currently. It's just something that should be fixed, but it's definitely not a reason to avoid FC4 (a tip in the release notes would be useful though :) ).
