Re: updating FC4 -> FC5 remotely (no CD of any kind!!)

hi...

given the issue of using yum for an install, i'm trying to figure out how to
effectively update an FC4 to FC5 without using a CD (either ISO or
rescueCD). i've seen articles stating that you can do a FTP/NFS install, but
that you need a 'boot' disk...

is there a way to do the update/install without using any kind of CD...

Yes, just edit $releasever to 5 in /etc/yum.repos.d/

fedora-core.repo
fedora-extras.repo
fedora-updates.repo

and do a

yum update

and see what happens. I have done this on a couple of remote boxes now with good results, but note they were headless so there were no X11 and above (ie, KDE, Gnome) packages involved.
