    Upgrade 28 to 29 (beta)

    The upgrade went ok. The way it is now however I think itís easier to just reinstall. The rpmfusion repos are deactivated because the 29 repo uses new keys. So a lot of software is not upgraded. For me personally itís just easier to reinstall after a backup of my settings.

    then add the required keys and afterwards do:

    sudo dnf distro-sync

    My experience has been that if we do the system upgrade from version x to version x+1 then it can be as long as six hours, particularly because I have a lot of stuff.

    For every package or individual item I install, I maintain a list in a script. My experience is:
    do a fresh installation, saving /home or if backed up, even make a fresh /home
    Installing Fedora Gnome xx or Fedora KDE xx (just the minimal packages usually runs in less than an hour. I know I have a working installation.
    After rebooting and doing some minimal work, I prepare my script to run. I run it before going to bed.
    In the AM, I have a recreated and upgraded system. Really easy.

    I have a script for most of my system programs too. I just have to manually reinstall sabnzbd and copy some system configuration files. A brand new system can be set up in less than 90 minutes and this way I'm sure everything is OK.

    Re: Upgrade 28 to 29 (beta)

    As a Linux'er I occasionally read a blog about a software, I install it and after a while, move on to the next product. If I like that product, it's goes into my resinstall script.
    Doing a system upgrade drags along stuff that I looked at, and for which I have no further interest. I prefer a new install as a way to make a clean uncluttered system, and then start again to clutter it with the software I use and want reinstalled. I do my "spring cleaning" with every release.

    And the total time for a fresh install is substantially less than with the "dnf system upgrade approach".
    If you run databases or large applications with lots of tweaking, than my method is not for you.

    The current laptop I am using had fedora 21 originally and has been upgraded through each release up to f29 beta. I have encountered some minor issues that were easily resolved. Yeah you can end up with accumulating software that you don't use. I usually do a review of what I have installed at each version upgrade and remove anything I don't want any more.

    Re: Upgrade 28 to 29 (beta)

    I copied the keys. I downloaded the keys. I do something wrong, because no matter how I try to import the keys with rpm --import, all I get is failures. I guess I use the wrong syntax. Can somebody tell me the exact syntax how to import the new fedora 29 keys for rpmfusion?

    Can you post exactly what you typed and what error(s) you get? This information will be very helpful.

    Just visit the rpmfusion website and click on the link to do the installation. or put the following in a script

    VERSION=$(grep -F "VERSION_ID" /etc/os-release | cut -d'=' -f2)
    echo "Retrieving rpmfusion.org repository info"
    rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-${VERSION}.noarch.rpm
    rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-${VERSION}.noarch.rpm

    You can get the same information like this -

    Code:
    rpm -E %fedora
