Per Joe's Request. Here is how I did an upgrade from Fedora Core 5 to
Fedora Core 6 on my MythTV combined Frontend/Backend. The system was
originally built from Jarod Wilson's excellent instructions. While this
worked for me, your mileage may vary.
1. Run the following as root:
# yum -y update
It may not be actually needed, but it seemed to make sense to get the
FC5 install up to date before proceeding with FC6.
2. # yum clean all
To remove all the old yum “leftovers”
3. Turn off all of the “non-Fedora and not atrpms” repositories. There
may be version conflicts between repositories, and it is best to use
just the Fedora and Axel's repos at this point. Either edit
/etc/yum.conf to remove references to the other repositories, or go to
/etc/yum.repos.d and rename the non-Fedora .repo files to remove the
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d
# mv freshrpms.repo freshrpms
etc., etc., as needed.
4. Now bring over the FC6 release info. Note: the following is all one line:
# rpm -Uhv
5. # rpm -ev vcdimager
I hit a dependency loop with vcdimager, this got around it. If you tend
to mess with VCDs, you will want to add it back after step 9.
6. # yum -y upgrade ivtv
I hit a dependency snag (I think it was the same one that Larry Roberts
and Axel Thimm were discussing on the list) involving ivtv-kmdl and
vmlinuz versions. As an attempt to narrow down the problem, I tried just
upgrading ivtv, and it found and pulled in the appropriate kernel and
ivtv bits. Sometimes, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn.
7. # yum -y upgrade
This will upgrade the rest of the system, including MythTV, to the
latest FC6 versions.
8. Reverse steps 5 and 3, if you feel you need to.
9. Reboot, and (for me at least) all is good.
I hope that helps someone...
