OMG!  Sounds more like horror stories and it seems to be
all the more reasons move towards a clean install, instead
of an upgrade.  Thanks for sharing that - I guess it seems that
upgrades are not for the faint of heart.

I have not invested a lot of time with F10 (other than installing
and updating it [and upgrades, I might add...]) due to the fact I
*really* wanted the "gnome session save" working on F10,
which will probably never see the light of day.

My computer with F10 installed is a PIII 256cache, w/ 512MB
RAM, Nvidia TNT, has >50GB of freespace and sadly, I was not
able to do an upgrade.  It really bombs out. This F10 as I showed
earlier, is disk encrypted, is LVM, otherwise might be the real
problem why upgrades will not work.  I have no clue. No
breadcrumbs to follow as to why it fails.

I also have an old system w/P3x2, w/256MB RIMM and I discovered
quickly that I could only install up to F9.  F10 apparently requires
at least 512MB RAM in order to run off the CD install. It never had
a chance, in hell even ;)

Thanks for sharing!
