I followed the steps from http://www.brandonhutchinson.com/Upgrading_Red_Hat_Linux_with_yum.html
and I got stuck.
# rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/5/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/fedora-release-5-5.noarch.rpm
2. Upgrade to Fedora Core 5.
# yum -y upgrade
Then failed ...
The following is the suggestion if the yum failed to upgrade.
If this step fails, I recommend running the following command to capture all screen output to /tmp/yum_upgrade.
# yum upgrade 2>&1 | tee /tmp/yum_upgrade
Failures generally indicate that a currently-installed RPM has a dependency that cannot be satisfied with packages from the new Fedora Core release. Deprecated packages and packages from third party repositories may cause this problem.
The following generates a list of packages that may need to be removed prior to a successful yum upgrade.
$ perl -ne 'print "$1\n" if ((/Error: Missing Dependency:.*is needed by package (.*)$/) || (/Error: Package (.*?) needs.*, this is not available./))' /tmp/yum_upgrade | sort | uniq
If the initscripts package is returned, I recommend booting into the latest Fedora Core 4 kernel, removing all previous kernels, and running yum upgrade again.
But I don't know what to do :(
The following is the output for the yum_upgrade:
[root@localhost tmp]# perl -ne 'print "$1\n" if ((/Error: Missing Dependency:.*i s needed by package (.*)$/) || (/Error: Package (.*?) needs.*, this is not avail able./))' /tmp/yum_upgrade | sort | uniq
Thanks for reading ...
