Upgrade Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 howto

A few simple steps to upgrade:

# As root you would like to have a clean start to the
# upgrade, so get an update out of the way.
$ yum update rpm

$ yum -y update

$ yum clean all

# Should a new kernel install/update require it,
# reboot before continuing with the rest.
# Then install the preupgrade package.
$ yum install preupgrade

# For console upgrade, use:
$ preupgrade-cli

# If you like gui's to upgrade, use this.
$ preupgrade

  1. That really helped out, i was willing to migrate from fedora 10 to 12, never thought it was so easy.

    The only issue i had was having too little space on /boot partittion, which was easly solved by deleting old kernel files.
