Upgrading from FC6 to Fedora 7



# a script to illustrate the steps required to upgrade using yum.

# Note that this is FC6 to F7.

# this should require a locally mounted repository for extra speed.

yum clean all

yum update

/usr/bin/pg_dumpall -U postgres >/storage/postgresql/all_data.backup

rm -rf /var/lib/pgsql/*

chown -R postgres.postres /var/lib/pgsql

#(/storage/linux... is my local repository)

rpm -Uvh /storage/linux/fedora/core/7/i386/mount/Fedora/fedora-release-*


# There's a missing dependency: libgcj.so.8rh


yum remove libglade-java libvte-java libgnome-java glib-java kdemultimedia

yum upgrade

#yum install libglade-java libvte-java libgnome-java glib-java kdemultimedia

service postgresql initdb

/etc/init.d/postgresql start

su - postgres

psql -f /storage/postgresql/all_data.backup

# you may need to check the ident config in pg_hba.conf, and that it's

# set to trust, not ident. Also there may be more than one file!
