Problem while upgrading from f14

Dear all,
I was trying this method to upgrade from my existing f14 to new f15.
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrad...dora_using_yum
I tried
Code:
rpm --import https://fedoraproject.org/static/069C8460.txt
yum update yum
yum clean all
yum --releasever=15 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync
All packages downloaded and after that when I set it to install it says,
Code:
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
pygtk2 = 2.17.0-7.fc14 is needed by (installed) pygtk2-libglade-2.17.0-7.fc14.x86_64
Please report this error in http://yum.baseurl.org/report
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Is there a workaround? Can anyone suggest?
thanks
Dhiraj

Re: Problem while upgrading from f14

basically, fedora devs dont give a rats about Upgrade methods atm. your better off to download the DvD and install from that

Re: Problem while upgrading from f14

Yeah, maybe. But I have many things installed in my machine. Downloading dvd and installing from that may take too much time. There must be some workaround.

Re: Problem while upgrading from f14

i cant see any other work around here other than downloading and installing from DvD. unless you remove this 1 package pygtk2 = 2.17.0-7.fc14 is needed by (installed) pygtk2-libglade-2.17.0-7.fc14.x86_64 cause it needs the updated package which is 2.24 http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/p...o?packageID=53, basically you need to remove the offending Package(s) there so the upgrade can pull in and install the updated poackage

if you can somehow get rid of pygtk2-libglade-2.17.0-7.fc14.x86_64 so the new one can be installed the upgrade should work . look for this package aswell pygtk2 = 2.17.0-7.fc14 and replace it with the F15 one which is 2.24

Re: Problem while upgrading from f14

I tried to yum erase pygtk2-libglade-2.17.0-7.fc14.x86_64 but with that sys-config-network and anaconda is set to be removed . so my basic network and grub writer will be uninstalled. I couldn't take the risk of that. I am now trying to manually upgrade that as you suggest. This is the only error it is showing. Is there a possibility of seeing other errors once I fix this? I mean fedora shows one error at a time or all the errors.
thanks
dhiraj

if you install from a DvD all should go fine. however if something fails. make a new thread and post the errors

Marko

i dont think PreUpgrade works with F14 upgrade to F15. i think the problem is to do with the fact F14 uses Upstart and F15 uses systemd the 2 dont mix to well during upgrades

Re: Problem while upgrading from f14

ok, Installation by dvd seems the only choice. Are you suggesting the to install from scratch or there is a way after downloading the dvd and upgrading from that?

install from Scratch, do not choose the Upgrade install go with a totally clean fresh install . if you got stuff on F14 install i suggest you Make a folder and put all your saved items in that and make that folder into a tarball and either burn it to a CD or send it elsewhere . and then install F15 and totally blow away your F14 install.

That isn't really true. Many of us work on fixing upgrading issues but we can't fix all of them necessarily. The supported and tested methods include using Anaconda and Preupgrade but I have personally been upgrading Fedora via yum for several releases now.

Re: Problem while upgrading from f14

from what i read ages ago i think it was from AdamW that the PreUpgrade wasnt on our todo list, something along those lines. as a lot of people had poblems upgrading.

Re: Problem while upgrading from f14

Hi

It is likely you misunderstood what was said because preupgrade has been a supported method for upgrading for a long time. For Fedora 15, as usual we had a test day as well

I would remove the broken dep package

Code:
su
rpm -e pygtk2-libglade --nodeps
then run
Code:
yum --releasever=15 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync
