Upgrade from FC9 to CentOS 6?

Post by bk_InAZ » 2011/08/18 22:35:09

I would like to upgrade rather than do a fresh install. Is that advisable, or even possible?

Also, I am trying to avoid Gnome 3. Is the older version (2) included in the latest CentOS disti?

Many thanks for your answers!

Upgrades from Fedora to CentOS aren't supported. Nor is CentOS 5 to CentOS 6 for that matter. It may be possible but you're likely to be left with orphaned packages. Better to backup your personal data and do a reinstall.

The good news is that CentOS 6 uses Gnome 2.28.
