Hi,
I'm trying to upgrade from FC9 to FC10 using yum,
I've checked for any rpmnew packages,
I've removed most orphans.
Switched selinux to disabled/permissive
Updated fedora-release using

rpm -Uhv
ftp://download.fedora.redhat/com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-*noarch.rpm


After correcting the URL above, I found this the simplest way to upgrade my system.

rpm -Uhv ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-*noarch.rpm

note redhat/com should be redhat.com

After that I did:
yum clean all
yum update
About 2 hours later, I was checking a couple of .rpmnew files (sshd and httpd) and shortly after that, restarted.

The only problem I had was with mgetty... seems the F10 version has retrogressed since the F9 version.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=492637 if interested in the bug details.

Other than that, it was the most painless upgrade I've done, and plan to upgrade to F11 the same way. (I still d/l the DVD ISO in case I need a rescue disk at some point in the future. ;-)
