in 5 days FC2 will be released. And many of the users who use FC2t3 now will want to change to FC2. I think there will be a lot of questions about this topic, so I propose to write a howto before the problem exists.
Unfortunately I am one of the fc2t3 users. It happend by accident (I will never play with apt-get dist-upgrade again
). So on 17th may I'm going to upgrade it. I think the best way will be not just to update my old installation, but to delete it and install the stable release. So I need my home folder to be safed. So I move my /home/ directory on a new partition. (http://www-106.ibm.com/developerwork...-partplan.html
What do I need more ? /var/ ? /etc/ ?
I don't have anything interesting in /var/www or else I would backup it too.
Then I change to init 1
and then rm -rf
Is there a better way?
Ok, because I want to make a networkinstallation I will need the boot and modul floppy before. Where will I be able to get them?
Now I boot on this floppy (or cd for others). Then I choose to install to the root partition I had before. And will choose my old /home partition as my new /home , and ask Fedora not to format it. Then the other things should be normal.
Then I add the users I had before and that's it.
What was forgotten by me? What is wrong? We have 5 days time, so it can be perfect at the end
