Basic aid requested. Install issues.

I am learning more about Linux and I have some questions.

Since I rarely modify things I never work with any of the systems so I am at a loss.

I see in the install log that some things didn't go right.


22:52:43 Installing ypbind-1.33-7.fc16.x86_64
Running in chroot, ignoring request.

22:52:55 Installing gpm-1.20.6-18.fc16.x86_64
error reading information on service gpm: No such file or directory

22:52:23 Installing plymouth-0.8.4-0.20110822.2.fc16.x86_64
Need 'inst' function, try setting PLYMOUTH_POPULATE_SOURCE_FUNCTIONS to a file that defines it

grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
grubby: doing this would leave no kernel entries. Not writing out new config.

Are these things I should fix?

I have installed F14 and upgraded to F16.

I didn't see the failure of systemd notice this boot but the boot stopped after I entered the pass-phrase for the encrypted drive.

There is something wrong with F16 and encryption.

By installing F14 first some of the startup errors I don't see but it hangs just after the password is entered for the encrypted volume

So what do I do? I have tried every method I can think of to get a clean install.

At this point I'm unsure what to do.. F16 distro is not healthy on an 8-core 8150 cpu system afaict.

Any ideas?

Re: Basic aid requested. Install issues.

# If you are upgrading from f14 to f16 you will run into many issues
# grub --> grub2 is a potential issue
# caribou is a prerequisite which is skipped during upgrade, please install
yum -y install caribou.x86_64
# or for i686
yum -y install caribou.i686
