    Quoting ,
    "FAQ: Do I Need To Reinstall Fedora16 Final Release When its Out?

    Answer: No. Just Keep Your System Up To Date on a Daily Basis And it Will Switch Automatically to The Final Release"

    Now you confuse me. Will the RC5 be the same as the release on Tuesday?
    Or doing a yum update on the RC5 daily make it same as the release on Tuesday?

    as Detox said RC5 is the final ... RC5 was declared Gold in the go/no-go meeting and will be shipped as Fedora 16.

    For updates: of course, updates will be waiting after install, does not matter if you chose to install RC5 or F16 Final

    and for a system with daily yum update you should be ahead of the ISO ...

    Re: F16 RC5 impending, please help test

    Hi,
    I downloaded the 64 Bit RC5 at home and the 32 Bit RC5 at work.
    Today morning, I wanted to verify the sha256sum for the 32 bit DVD ISO but the RC5 iso's and files have been removed from the servers.
    Can anyone please put the sha256sum for the i386 DVD?

    Thanks,
    Elison

    Re: F16 RC5 impending, please help test

    I did mention that I got the checksum from the deltaisos directory.
    I panicked because wget had 2 downloaded files.
    All I had to do was combine them to get the final iso !! Checksum verified !

    Thanks,

    For when wget screws up : Check this

    http://www.howtogeek.com/wiki/How_to...alfway_Through

    Have you ever had the situation where you tried to download files using the wget utility on Linux, and then the transfer fails? It will try again to download the file, and then you'll have two parts of the full file.

    So in this scenario, what you do is use the cat command to combine the two files, or you can combine many files this way. Just follow a similar syntax to this:
    cat downloaded.iso downloaded.iso.1 > downloaded.iso.final
    At this point, you should have the full file back together.

    ---------- Post added at 11:59 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:58 AM ----------

    Or you can use the delta-isos if you don't want to do the updates.

    Re: F16 RC5 impending, please help test

    there was 2 interuptions in my download but wget -c resumed the download rather than having 2 files.but md5sum in the end showed dfferent key.so all in all it was a botched resume.

    1) depends on your skill (will to tweak things to work)
    2) No, its pre-release
    3) No, normal updates will bring you into 'final' stage (even before the final is released)

    the checksums are sha256sum, not md5sum.
