Re: First impressions of a system update with yum

I successfully upgraded from FC5 to FC6 by having only packages installed using yum. Before that I always has a lot of tarball installs on the system and then upgrading to a new release was just a disaster every time I had tried it. Of course the upgrade to FC6 wasn't without problems, like i586 kernel, and the upgrade breaking in the middle and leaving a huge number of duplicate packages installed. So there was a lot of cleanup to do. But I'm really encouraged to hear that it looks like a FC6 - FC7 upgrade is going good without major problems (at least on 32-bit). :-)
