Updating fedora 8 to fedora 9
This guide was simultaneously authored testing a AMD64 Desktop running i386 (32-bit) Fedora and Intel Duo Core Laptop running x86_64 (64-bit) Fedora.
Fedora 9 is provided as either CD-ROM's or DVD-ROM's for installation.
The following steps were done with the single DVD installation.Yes, I know it’s not supported, but neither is anything else. I took the time on friday to try out the yum update and it worked swimmingly. I ran pybackpack and duplicity and backed up all my stuff to remote 1. You can either download the multiple CD sets or single DVD for installation.The DVD-ROM disk is preferred and recommended method of installation.
However this requires a high-speed internet access that is detected by the Fedora Installer.
