Re: Repository question
It appears Preupgrade is the problem. The boot folder contains file names containing *fc16*. There is no reference to fc17 within the boot folder. The file /etc/os-release reads:
VERSION="17 (Beefy Miracle)"
PRETTY_NAME="Fedora 17 (Beefy Miracle)"
I recall when first attempting to boot to Fedora 17 after Preupgrade said it was finished the first line in the Grub menu refered to upgrade Fedora 17. Selecting this option led to a black screen for a half hour, then I manually powered down. Sudsequent booting to the second option in the Grub menu got me into Fedora. Did a grub update, rebooted and the reference to Fedora 17 in the grub menu was gone.
I'd like to update to 17, one thing I find curious is when booting 17 from the live CD its necessary to select safe graphics mode. This wasn't necessary from the live CD in 16. Will it be necessary to do a clean install of 17?
