Fedora 14: Laughlin

Op 2 november werd Fedora 14 losgelaten. Intussen heb ik mijn fedora 13 machine geüpgraded.


  • wget ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/14/Everything/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-14-1.noarch.rpm
  • rpm –import ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/14/Everything/i386/os/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-i386
  • rpm -Uvh fedora-release-14-1.noarch.rpm
  • yum clean all
  • Verlaat grafische omgeving met ctrl-alt-F2 of typ “init 3” als root.
  • Start upgrade met “yum upgrade” ==> Dit gaf bij mijproblemen met een aantal pakketten: kudzu, rhpl, policycoreutils-python.
    En “yum upgrade –skip-broken loste niks op omdat het python en zijn afhankelijkheden dan niet updateten.
  • Eerst deze pakketten verwijderen: rpm -e kudzu rhpl policycoreutils-python policycoreutils-gui
  • Hierna terug “yum update” uitvoeren.
