Fedora Core Today, Fedora 11 will be unleashed upon the web. The release has been postponed for a few days, but this time it's for real. It comes packed with lots of changes, such as improved boot time, Nouveau as the default NVIDIA driver, and of course the latest and greatest version of various open source packages.

I miss the ability to update the disto to major new versions the way Debian distos can. Downloading a binary installer is so... old school.


to upgrade without downloading binary installer run following two commands:

rpm -Uvh ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/11/Fedo...

yum upgrade


here are some details.

PS Such approach works since RedHat 7.3.

Vitaliy
