Linux++:::: Fedora 10 -> 11: not in a jiffy

Got some time to myself and decided to upgrade my fedora 10 to fedora 11.

Big mistake. Upgrade has not been good for me; from f9 to f10. And now from f10 to f11.

The upgrade from dvd process went well. It's what happened after rebooting.

X don't work. So thought I'd do a yum update. Met ith "cannot import yum module".

Great. Realized that there were two python versions and python2.5 has everything intact. So:

  export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages

Now yum worked. yum update pulled in 900+ packages ! (well that was my fault for installing lotsa stuff)

When yum finished, rebooted and was met with a blank screen.

Dang. Guessed that grub was screwed. Booted to rescue mode, ran grub-install, and rebooted again.

At last. Now everything works (I hope).

So, fresh install next time? I doubt it ;D

p/s - f11 dual monitor setup works :

  xrandr --output VGA1 --left-of LVDS1

Haven't yet booted with bootchart to compare boot time between f10 and f11.
