Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 13 to Fedora 14(64) upgrade.

In this upgrade, I planned to skip a version to see how things go jumping up two levels.  Unfortunately reading this post from The Register about Linus Torvalds had me thinking back to F14 again.  (This brings back fond memories of the KDE 4.0 desktop upgrade issues in F9 that didn't go so well.  I have a feeling I'll be going back to KDE but we'll find out soon enough) 

Fedora 15 has been out since May 24 2011 and Fedora 14 since Nov 02 2010.  More importantly, driving this upgrade, is that my release has rolled into the not-supported-anymore category  However the lucky number for me was F13 on my HTPC until now.  No issues until a recent boot up issue and what appears to have traces of a kernel panic in my messages log file after moving the entire thing to a new GA-890XA-UD3 motherboard, CPU and video card is what is really driving this upgrade.  (Apparently USB 3.0 related to my MB).

QUICK STEPS (32)

  1. cd /some/dir
  2. mkdir ./F13toF14
  3. cd ./F13toF14
  4. nice -n 19 yum update 2>&1 | tee -a F13-Update-$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H(24)-%M-%S").log
    (If you get No Packages marked for Update you are good.)
  5. Ensure you have debuglevel=10 and errorlevel=10 enabled in /etc/yum.conf in case we need more debugging information to sift through and identify why something failed.
  6. nice -n 19 yum -y upgrade (should be the same as step 1 above)
  7. nice -n 19 yum clean all
  8. nice -n 19 yum clean all (Just to make sure everything looks clean)
  9. wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/14/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-14.0.3-1.fc14.noarch.rpm
  10. wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/14/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-14-1.noarch.rpm 
  11. rpm -Uvh fedora-release*.rpm
  12. cat /etc/fedora-release  (Make sure ‘Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)‘ appears )
  13. nice -n 19 yum -y upgrade 2>&1|tee -a ./F13-to-F14-Upgrade.$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H(24)-%M-%S").log
  14. Refer below for any issues and repeat from step 12) as necessary.


RUNNING INTO PROBLEMS

It's almost certain we will.  And we do right at the update no less.  Simply used –skip-broken flag to skip some of the packages.

Depsolve time: 33.816

           Removing: 1:faad2-libs-2.7-1.fc11.i586 (@rpmfusion-free/12)
 You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest

 

After removing a few packages to resolve dependencies

  520  rpm -e python-psyco-1.6-4.fc12.i686
  521  rpm -e python-psyco-1.6-4.fc12.i686 1.5.5-2.fc13.i686
  522  rpm -e python-psyco-1.6-4.fc12.i686 eclipse-pydev-1:1.5.5-2.fc13.i686
  524  rpm -e python-psyco-1.6-4.fc12.i686 eclipse-pydev-1.5.5-2.fc13.i686
  525  rpm -e python-psyco-1.6-4.fc12.i686
.
.
.

It turned into another successful upgrade.  At least for the 32 bit version.  Let's see how things go for the 64 bit one below.

QUICK STEPS (64)

  1. cd /some/dir
  2. mkdir ./F14-32toF14-64
  3. cd ./F14-32toF14-64

  13. nice -n 19 yum -y upgrade 2>&1|tee -a ./F14-32-to-F14-64-Upgrade.$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H(24)-%M-%S").log
  14. Refer below for any issues and repeat from step 12) as necessary.


RUNNING INTO PROBLEMS

I ran into problems with the fedora-release versions.  I've opted to remove them and install the ones from the x86_64 repository instead:

# rpm -Uvh fedora-release-14-1.noarch.rpm fedora-release-notes-14.0.3-1.fc14.noarch.rpm
Preparing…                ########################################### [100%]
        package fedora-release-notes-14.1.2-2.fc14.noarch (which is newer than fedora-release-notes-14.0.3-1.fc14.noarch) is already installed
        package fedora-release-14-1.noarch is already installed
#

Chop Chop:

# rpm -e fedora-release-notes-14.1.2-2.fc14.noarch
# rpm -e fedora-release-14-1.noarch
error: Failed dependencies:

UNFORTUNATELY, it turned out that upgrading a 32 bit OS from a 64 bit one cannot be done in this case.  The best bet is to reinstall one from scratch.  For this, I opted to resize my current environment LVM and reinstall a 64 bit OS on the same hard disk once free space was visible.  To do so, please search this site for LVM or PXE to find out how to do so if resizing is needed to free space for a new install.

Cheers!
