    upgrade to Fedora 13 Beta

    Hi,
    I have downloaded the Fedora 13 Beta live ISO, but when I try to install to disk it does not allow me to upgrade. I currently have the Ext3 filesystem on my laptop. Could that be the problem? I am also trying to upgrade using preupgrade and I get a message "Failed to download installer metadata." Please help. I don't mind waiting for the stable release, but I do not want to lose what I already have on the system. Please help.

    Hi Bob,

    I'm sorry, but I do not understand what you are trying to say.

    I'm saying that the post should have been in the F13 Development Forum, rather than in installation, since F13 hasn't yet been released. All posts for testing versions belong in their own Forum, not in the Main Forums. So, I moved it. No big deal; I shuffle dozens of posts every day.

    As far as I know, a livecd install doesn't have an upgrade option. You'd probably need to do the cd's or dvd for that. Or, once it's final there's probably a preupgrade and upgrade path you can take. It depends what version you're trying to upgrade from?

    Also, generally a livecd install is going to require an ext4 file system. It would be more helpful if you told us what options it gave you and what you're trying to do, particularly since F13 is still in beta.

    If you had a Boot partition of 200 megs it will not let you upgrade it now has to be at least 500 megs for Boot.

    You cannot upgrade with a liveCD. For upgrades, you need the DVD. Also, if you install from the liveCD, your only option for the / partition is the ext4 file system, since the image on the cd is ext4.

    If you have an existing installation, you can try preupgrade. There is an option that makes preupgrade show intermediate releases and Rawhide.

    Hi guys,
    Thank you for the replies. I now have 1 follow up questions. Is it possible for me to convert my existing filesystem from Ext3 to Ext4 on the fly?
