# 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 13 (Goddard)" # If you like gui's to upgrade, use this. # $ preupgrade
This is exactly the same process as I previously described with Fedora 11 to Fedora 12 upgrade.
=============== Update ===================
There was a hitch on my laptop, some friends have asked about how to install when your boot partition is smaller than the Fedora 13 required 250 MB. I have been upgrading since Fedora 10 so have like 200 MB boot partition. Just 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.
This solution is also to be found on the Fedora Project Wiki.
