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.

Preupgrade runs from a up2date environment and therefore is more reliable.

On small pc park we have a lot of problems with preupgrade and no failure with yum upgrade approach during upgrades from Fedora 9 to 10.
Do you have different experience?


Anaconda (and preupgrade) uses yum underneath and therefore does not download more packages than yum upgrade itself does.

it downloads firstboot, anaconda-yum-plugins and several other useless rpms that it forgets to remove after installation.


If you want to automate upgrades across 50 systems, use kickstart.

I was under impression kickstart is for automating installation (not upgarde process). Can it do upgrades?
Have you tried it yourself?

Preupgrade has a command line mode as well btw.

Thank you for the information.
