Upgrading from RH8.0 to Fedora
Posted on 2004-11-14
Has anyone had experience in upgrading from Redhat 8.0 to Fedora?
I run a shared RH8.0 box with web server, mail etc, and someone took it upon thereselves to upgrade IMAP, which led down the slippery slope of RPM dependencies and eventually the server broke after glibc was updated.
The box is now back up and running, but a number of the services (particularly those that rely on openssl) are not working properly. I've lost track of what has tried to be "fixed", but I think most of the updated RPM's used to update/break the box were Fedora RPM's.
Is it as simple as plonking the Fedora CD's in the drive and choosing the upgrade option?
