F8 -> F9 preupgrade



Hi,

I tried preupgrade without success, but at least it didn't destroy
my old installation. :-)

I started package downloads with preupgrade 0.9.3-1, then killed it
when 0.9.3-2 came out, upgraded and continued downloading.
Total download size was about 6.2 GB, I have many huge games
installed from Fedora 8 Everything. However, this version hung
at the last download phase, which was fixed by 0.9.3-3.
This version offered to reboot into upgrade finally, which I did.
It booted into anaconda upgrade, which detected my partitions correctly.
The problem that made the upgrade unsuccessful was that Anaconda
doesn't pull the network settings from my old installation and I have
an ADSL connection with a dump ADSL modem, not a router.
The GRUB boot line for preupgrade is this:

kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade lang=hu_HU.UTF-8 keymap=hu stage2=hd:sda1:/upgrade/stage.img \
   method=http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora/linux/releases=9/Fedora/x86_64/os

Anaconda stalled at "Retrying package download" because the network
connection isn't established. Replacing the method= parameter with
method=file:///mnt/sysimage/var/cache/yum/anaconda-upgrade
i.e. to point to the download directory gave me a Python exception
in Anaconda.

Best regards,
Zoltán Böszörményi
