I've been using Yum on my FC2 box, it's 100% up to date, what will I get by installing FC3?
Or more to the point, does FC2+Yum=FC3?
TIA!

I'm pretty sure that FC3's core coding isn't able to be accessible to FC2 using yum.

Basically, FC2+Yum doesnt equal FC3.

No there are quite a few differences. Sure you can upgrade to some of the new packages available for fc3 but it still won't have some of the things available only on fc3. Look at this thread http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=21873 for pre-release pdf

kernel 2.6.9
Gnome 2.8
KDE 3.3
Firefox and Thunderbird (newer version)
Better wireless support
and others.

Thx for the quick reply! I will have to RTFM on the kernel and KDE differences. Big fan of the fox and the bird is beginning to grow on me to, guessing it's upgrade time. :)

Comes with Evolution 2 also, which has MS Exchange support. Being on a windows network on campus, I am really looking forward to that.

From what I understand, you _could_ download and install FC3 packages (such as the kernel, Gnome and KDE), which would bring your FC2 system to a almost-but-not-quite-equal FC3 level.
Of course, there can be small problems in doing this, so it's probably better to just
download FC3 and perform a regular update.
