# 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 "Fedora 14 (Laughlin)" # If you like gui's to upgrade, use this. # $ preupgrade
This is exactly the same process as I previously described with Fedora 12 to Fedora 13 upgrade.
=============== Update ===================
There was a hitch on my laptop, due to my boot partition is smaller than the Fedora 14 required 250 MB. I have been upgrading since Fedora 10 so have a 200 MB boot partition. First ensure you are using a cabled connection (no wifi) and then try this:
# run preupgrade as normal, when it complains about not enough space just # continue, it will install the stage2 installer after the first reboot. # When it asks to reboot, do that. It should continue to finish the installation # when it restarts.
