Re: F-9 to F-10 preupgrade is rather mean

Unless something was changed recently, the idea is that pre-upgrade simply retrieves the minimal rpms needed to upgrade a specific system, then adds an additional grub boot item for upgrade.

When you reboot and choose upgrade, essentially a normal anaconda based upgrade occurs, with the same questions you'd normally get, and the same result.

This would include removing old kernels from /boot, and updating packages ( a two step process - install newer rpms, cleanup bits left over from old rpm that was updated ).

/lib/modules comes from the kernel, so I would expect to only have modules for the most recent installed kernel in there after the upgrade.

I have noticed during install/upgrade that kernel install occurs 80% into the process; did your install finish normally ?
