I upgraded from Fedora 17 to Fedora 18 using FedUp.
FedUp for me worked great... no problems whatsoever during installation.
After installation, got a few orphaned packages which I removed and updated to the newest ones.
However, I did find out one major quirk.. my laptop's webcam stopped working. It worked out of the box in Fedora 17 but doesn't work in 18 anymore. I can see the LED light go on when I open Cheese but no image shows up. Taking photos or videos doesn't do any good either, as it doesn't save anything (I thought maybe it just doesn't show it on screen but the camera might still be recording).

Btw, it's a HP pavilion 14" sleekbook, intel i3 core (so, intel video drivers). The driver does show up in the preferences of Cheese (/dev/video0) for my camera HP TrueVision HD.

Any help on this would be great, and much appreciated.
