I just installed FC5 and have two questions. If anyone knows the answer to either or both, I would much appreciate the insight.
(1) I had been running FC4 and wanted to do an update to FC5 rather than a new install from scratch. I wanted to avoid the problem of moving data directories and reinstalling several applications (like Mathematica). However, when Anaconda gives the chance to choose between these two options, choosing "update" caused an "exception" and Anaconda aborted. I was anxious to get up and running with FC5, so I did the new install. Worked fine. Anyone know why the option to update to FC5 does not work?
(2) At the point during the installation process when we can select packages to install, I was VERY disappointed that the option to install "everything" was no longer there! What would possess anyone from removing such a useful and convenient option? I was forced to go through every item and select all packages manually. That took about ten minutes. However, I think the result was that I still don't have everything installed. For example, I did an rpm -qa for mozplugger, and it was not found. Now with FC4, choosing "everything" did install mozplugger. Also in FC4, the option "everything" had a note that "everything" included many additional packages that were simply not in the list. I suspect that is still true in FC5, which would explain why I did not end up with mozplugger installed. I would appreciate any feedback in this issue. How can I get every available package installed when they are not all in the lists? It seems to me that the FC5 Anaconda program has taken a giant step backward, and we have lost some very convenient functionality.
