    Fedora Core 3 Test 2 Upgrade via apt

    Hi,

    has anyone completed (successfully) and upgrade from: Fedora Core 3 - Test 1 to Test 2 via APT?

    I would also like to hear about any upgrade success with 'synaptic'

    Regards,

    Stephen

    Looks like no one reading this thread knows how to do this then...

    Maybe I have to bite the bullet and plain upgrade via burnt cdrom instead :-(

    I don't think it will work....at least nicely.....apt / yum are having repository problems with Fedora last version...i talk from myself.

    Yes,

    When your running a "Test" release you are always pulling from "Rawhide" or development branch. So you are always up2date w/ a simple yum update. The tricks come from moving from FC2 --> FC3 --> FC4.

    As some will point out though, one of the main things behind test release is to catch bugs. So the Devel's would love for you to re-install to test the installer out.
    aka "jlc" on irc.

    Main Desktop:
    Rawhide x86_64
    MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum
    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchester @ 2350MHz
    CORSAIR XMS TWINX1024-3200C2 2GB
    BFG Nvidia GeForce 6800GT OC @ 370MHz 256MB GDDR3
    2x80GB SATA 150 Segate Raid 0
