fedora core 8 to fedora core 9 using iso DVD image.

start with obtaining



mkdir -p /media/fedora

mount -o loop Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso /media/fedora

then cd /media/fedora/Packages

[[email protected] Packages]# rpm -Uvh fedora-release-9-2.noarch.rpm  fedora-release-notes-9.0.0-1.noarch.rpm

then  tweak the /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo

to have something as such ..

[fedora-dvd] name=Fedora DVD
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY
then  run..

[[email protected] Packages]# yum –disablerepo \* –enablerepo fedora-dvd upgrade

it show some of the conflicting package..

remove those conflicting package..

except the one with python libssh2 libgnu

for libssh2 & libgnu

rpm -e –nodeps libssh2 libgnuwhat-the.png

do not remove python

else your yum would’nt work anymore..

python is a bit tricky.. make sure you run yum update -y to the latest prior to upgrading..to get around the python-libs dependencies..

keep the old Fedora-8-i386.iso handy as well .. in case need to re-install old package.

i did accidentally removed python with

rpm -e –nodeps python python-libs

and after that yum is unusable until i do a

rpm -Uvh  python-2.5.1-15.fc8.i386.rpm python-libs-2.5.1-15.fc8.i386.rpm

yes.. grab that from the old FC8 dvd..

and yum  clean all

then try again

yum clean all

yum –disablerepo \* –enablerepo fedora-dvd upgrade python


this time succeed without any error then only I can perform full upgrade with..

yum –disablerepo \* –enablerepo fedora-dvd upgrade

    Good Morning ,
    I have a TL-WR1043ND router Ver 1.10 and not able to find Hardware version, as what I understood from other posts that this should be then Hardware version 1.
    Have installed OpenWRT in total 3 files :
    German stock firmware (v3.9.17)
    – attitude_adjustment 12.09-rc2 and
    attitude_adjustment 12.09-rc2 and able to able access my router TL-WRT1043ND

    I guess that it is my age (59) but I a losing it on the configuration and explanation, first the first of all on many images that I have seen on the internet in the part Internet -> Swith VLAN witch is starting with PORT 1 -2-3-4-5-CPU however on my installed OpenWRT it starts with PORT 0-1-2-3-4-CPU so I guess something is already wrong on my side, having said this most images are related to HARDWARE VERSION 1.8

    My main goal is to get connect to UNIFI Malaysia (20MB connection) I know that Unifi provides an IPTV package but to honest I don’t need this IPTV connection at all.

    The bottom line, I like get connected to UNIFI with OPENWRT and I am really begging f someone can assist me in to get connect to Unifi. I know it is labor day (May 1) but will be great full if somebody can assist me.
