RE: Upgrade FC3 to FC10



Thanks.  Have come to conclusion that fresh install and a recompile of
source material is the answer.

Before the recent preupgrade from f10 to f11/rawhide I've never had an
upgraded that worked well enough to use.  Things might have seemed to
work for a wile, but there were a lot of rough edges.  Doing a long
string of upgrades would just compound the problem.  Sure he can try,
but *I* wouldn't bother.

Half the advantage of doing an upgrade is that one gets to blow away
one's hacked-to-death config files that one did years ago when one
didn't understand things as well.
