    Upgrade FC1

    Since FC1 has reached legacy status lately, I've been wanting to upgrade directly to FC3. So, my question is:

    If I download and install the redhat-release RPM for FC3, update the up2date profile and have up2date download and install updates, would it essentially upgrade me to FC3?

    Or are there unforeseen problems I've missed?

    Thanks!

    I never done a fc1 to fc3 migration, BUt i am always a fan of going though the os versions to ensure nothing is left behind. fc1 -> fc2 -> fc3

    Thanks Steve.. but do you think I can do this? If there are some smaller issues I can resolve them, I just don't want it to turn into one huge mess.

    Don't know if you use a CP or not. I use cpanel and I followed [iG]'s Guide here .

    Haven't made the jump to FC3 yet. Actually I'm debating even staying with Fedora. Not that I've had any real issues, but sheesh the lifetime is short!

    Here's another guide I've been eyeing for when the time comes

    The only hangups I personally had were with the existing redhat-config rpms causing dependency issues during 'yum upgrade'. Basically I just removed the problem rpms and let yum reinstall them later on if they were called for.

    I also agree about moving step-by-step. Yes definitely.

    Good luck let us know how it goes
