Actually, the best thing to do is a clean install of Fedora 7. There have been a lot of changes, especially the way the kernel recognises hard disks and a lot of things that could break.

Looking at the output I would imagine you have both the Freshrpms and Livna repos enabled, which is a big no-no!

The best thing is sort out the conflicts you've created by enabling these two repos that don't get along with each other and wait a month till F8 is released and do a clean install and not an upgrade.

hi wayne,

thanks for the reply.

>I would imagine you have both the Freshrpms and Livna repos enabled, which is a big no-no!
yeah your right! my bad, I cant remember why i enabled these repos but they are now there.

When you say to do a clean install rather than a upgrade, do you mean to boot my box using the fedora 7 iso and do a clean install? I want to keep my current file system and programs but would like to update to the latest and greatest. Could you clarify what you mean?

Cheers

Just format the / partition but leave your /home alone if it's on a separate partition (which it is better) If not, back-up the data in /home and make sure you have a partition for it when you install F7. As I said, F8 is less than a month away and is looking good so it might be worth waiting.

As for your repo conflicts, Leigh will be in soon to tell you about the 'protectbase' plug-in for YUM :D

Or you can just deactivate one of that repositories ;)
And reinstall some progs from one of them

Ooohh, I like the sound of that. I'm also running FC6 with various no-no repositories that have been enabled from time to time. Sometimes you just plain a different repository for things, and installing from source mixed in with binary packages can cause it's own set of problems.

Needing things that are in a "bad" repository and not wanting to mix source code installed apps with binary packages has caused me to go with gentoo on a client PC (mythTV client), and I'm undecided which way to go when I upgrade my main FC6 box. If this protectbase plug-in can solve my woes it would really be nice.

Yes, I started with the Freshrpms repo activated but wanted to switch to Livna because avidemux wouldn't install due to one of Freshrpms libraries. I had to remove a few files, then switch repos, do an update with the Livna repo, then reinstall the things I'd removed. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. A quick search through the forum will turn up the thread explaining what I did.
