Typed fedora core 6 in google, in order to search for a official installation guide.
I hope that you can solved your problem and headaches.
Yes, I solved this situation by first installing FC5 onto the server with the working FC5 floppy install disk set, and then following this system update guide:
Basically, this is what I did:
- I disabled all non-necessary daemons.
- upgraded these: rpm -Uvh MIRRORURL/fedora-release-notes-6-3.noarch.rpm MIRRORURL/fedora-release-6-4.noarch.rpm
- executed: yum clean all
- installed FC6 kernel: rpm -ivh MIRRORURL/kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686.rpm
- disabled autofs & haldaemon: chkconfig autofs off && chkconfig haldaemon off
- rebooted the system with the FC6 kernel
- deleted the FC5 kernel: rpm -e kernel-smp-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
- upgraded haldaemon: rpm -Uvh --nodeps MIRRORURL/hal-0.5.8.1-4.fc6.i386.rpm MIRRORULR/hal-cups-utils-0.6.2-4.i386.rpm MIRRORULR/hal-gnome-0.5.8.1-4.fc6.i386.rpm
. If you have the hal-devel package, you have to upgrade that rpm package too.
- upgraded autofs: rpm -Uvh MIRRORURL/autofs-5.0.1-0.rc2.10.i386.rpm
- upgraded the rest of all packages to FC6: yum update
- enabled autofs & haldaemon chkconfig autofs on && chkconfig haldaemon on
- rebooted the system.
- removed or replaced all .rpmnew files. Remember, do not replace your original /etc/passwd file with the passwd.rpmnew file, if such a file is created. Just compare them, and correct the information if necessary in your original /etc/passwd file.
- rebooted again.
If you follow this guide, remember to replace MIRRORURL with the whole path to the Fedora/RPMS/ directory.
The system is up and running now, with FC6 installed.
