Re: RH9 Upgrade to Fedora

Are there any issues upgrading RH9 to Fedora? Will it retain current system configurations and leave everything intact?

This all depends on exactly what mix of RPM's you have installed, and what customizations you have made to your system.

If you only have RPM's installed that came from the RedHat 9 Channel, then you will probably be just fine to do an apt or yum based upgrade.
There might be some configuration file issues that you will have to manually resolve. If you haven't made major changes to your system you should be fine and everything should work with only a handful of minor tweaks.

If I were you I would go to the AT-RPMs site and get their RedHat 9
kickstart package. Install it, make sure your RH9 system has no broken dependencies and get it completely up2date. (run "apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get dist-upgrade")


Then, after you do that... go back to the AT-RPMS site and get their kickstart package for Fedora Core 1, upgrade your APT install and apt-sources. Then run "apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get dist-upgrade"

Then go back and do the same think to get you to FC2....

I haven't done this before, but I think it will work.
