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.

Upgrade from 10 to 11 didn't go smoothly

X is not starting and several services are failing. I installed nvidia drivers, but still X does not start. Sorry for the terse post but I'll post again later when I get around to fixing it.

Sounds like every Ubuntu upgrade attempt I've made..

I find it easier these days to have /home on its own partition.. I do a fresh install on an LVM partition, and switch over. Other than the time to install I'm usually up and fully running within an hour. Usually beats figure out the upgrade niggles.

Yeah, I know I should do that; on my workstation I'm a little safer than on my laptop, and have a similar setup (but with Solaris Express).

Bummer.

I used preupgrade on my F10 with Nvidia drivers from RPMForge and it went without a hitch. Even the NVidia drivers were upgraded seamlessly and worked on the first boot of F11. I use the Compiz Fusion repo from fedoraforum.org, and even Compiz worked right after the upgrade.

The only thing I had to fix manually was to remove the VirtualBox rpm for F9 and reinstall with the F11 one.

Did you use the nvidia driver from RPM forge?
