    Disable fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo and enable fedora-development.repo. Refer http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Testing for more details. For installation, testing I recommend the latest rawhide snapshot at

    Hi,

    Well in technical terms, all packages have newer versions. So it is an upgrade. Now if you want to argue semantics, go ahead.

    Hi,

    Make sure you burned right and file a bug report. Posting here doesn't reach the right developers. Refer

    # repository is used for development of new releases.
    #
    # This repository can see significant daily turnover and major
    # functionality changes which cause unexpected problems with other
    # development packages. Please use these packages if you want to work
    # with the Fedora developers by testing these new development packages.

    [root@deymos ~]#yum upgrade

    It works relatively fine. Perhaps you need to uninstall some packages to resolve dependencies.

    Sorry for my bad english...
