Another Fedora upgrade later, and my system is back up and running. Hopefully this version will fix some of the problems from the previous Fedora 6 to 7 upgrade. When will I ever learn?
- System won’t boot. GRUB complains of Error 15: File not found when attempting to load kernel.
- Something bizarre happened to the IDE / SATA ordering in this release? Boot the system from the DVD again, and select ‘rescue an install system’.
- Open up ‘nano /boot/grub/grub.conf’
- Change this line, ‘root (hd1,0)’ to root ‘(hd0,0)’
- Wireless card won’t start.
- Plug in Ethernet cable.
- Make sure livna repository is enabled.
- Upgrade the kernel to the latest: ‘yum -y upgrade kernel’
- Reboot into new kernel.
- Install madwifi drivers. Why does this have to be done for EVERY upgrade? ‘yum install madwifi’
- Restart the network ‘/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart’
- Cyrus imapd won’t start. Complaining of libdb-4.5 library missing.
- Upgrade Cyrus, and make sure it installs the db4-utils package, this time. ‘yum upgrade -y cyrus’
One of these days I’ll move to a real Linux distribution, rather than the current hobbyist affair provided by Fedora. One of these days.
