Re: Preupgrade on Fedora-7

I just resurrected an old computer running Fedora-7.

But when I yum-installed preupgrade, and then ran preupgrade,
I got the error:
[tim harriet yum.repos.d]$ sudo preupgrade

I didn't really expect preupgrade to upgrade this machine to Fedora-10;
but why is it offered if it doesn't work?

Are you running as root? Does root have access to your X-server to open windows? (Is X11 even running?) the "$" prompt indicates that you are running as a user.

What does running "pre-upgrade-cli" do when run from a root account?

I tried this earlier (before F10 was released) and all attempts failed due to conflicts.
