Fedora :: Clean Up After Aborted Preupgrade?

Apr 27, 2010

I've just finished upgrading to f12 from f11 using the DVD ISO and all is well - I'm looking for a bit of guidance for a n00b on cleaning-up after an aborted preupgrade.A yum --enablerepo='*' clean all didn't clean-up as much as I'd hoped it would and neither did preupgrade-cli --clean - the latter of which reported that there was nothing to clean.I've upgraded all packages and removed orphans and just have the latest kernel installed.

Here's what I think I need to do:

# ls -l /boot | awk '{print $1 " " $8}'
-rw-r--r--. config-
-rw-r--r--. config-
drwxr-xr-x. efi
-rw-r--r--. elf-memtest86+-4.00


oh, now that i've posted this, i see a related post: Need to clean up failed preupgrade which confirms my thoughts.

Fedora Installation :: Clean Up Failed Preupgrade?

Dec 16, 2009

I got the /boot is to small error when I tried the preupgrade from FC 11 to 12. I would like to clean out all the installation files and try again with the recommended fixes. Preupgrade just reboots the box no and restarts FC11 up so I need to start over fresh.

Where are all the files that I need to clean up for the preupgrade?

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade :: Work Around "dirty File Systems" On Clean Disk?

Jul 2, 2011

After preupgrade downloads install media and reboots to start install, I get a dirty file systems error on /dev/sda2, my / partition.I fsck'd sda1,2,3,4,5,6 (all clean) and rebooted, ran preupgrade again and got same error. No other disks are mounted other than internal SSD.wtf is going on here? ;-)More importantly how does one get around this error? Only half-solution I have found on the net for this problem is to set allowDirty=1 in upgrade.py and recreate install.img. Have no preupgraded before so don't want to take any more risks than necessary.Thanks for any workarounds....---------- Post added at 03:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:31 AM ----------Anyone have ideas here? I'd like to avoid yum upgrading as that looks to entail more pain.Why on earth does Anaconda see my /dev/sda2 on "/" as dirty when fsck reports it as clean

Fedora Installation :: Using Preupgrade To Go From F 9 To F 10

Feb 22, 2009

I'm not an early adopter; i prefer to wait and see, and let others suffer the new distro's teething troubles. Finally, I decided to try preupgrade. I was a little astonished to find that it doesn't install itself to any menu, but that's OK. I ran it as root, and went on with what I was doing while it got ready. Eventually it prompted me to reboot and I did.

I'd like to say that everything went fine, and in about an hour, I had a working system with no glitches. Alas, that would be a lie. Not only did it change all my customized system sounds (with no apparent way of getting back what I want; the new sounds aren't selectable.) it replaced my carefully-tweaked fstab with one of its own. This mean that several partitions that I don't want mounted were. Not only that, in some cases right-click and unmount got a message that the partition wasn't mounted, even though I could browse it. I had to open a terminal and manually unmount them, followed by copying back my fstab to keep this from happening again.

While doing this, I learned that the arrow keys on my keyboard don't work right, with the up arrow mapped to screen shot, and the Enter key by the number pad disabled. I'm still working around that one.

Worst was that Firefox wouldn't open. Trying it from a terminal, I learned that it couldn't start XCOM. Weird.

I tried a system update, but the livna issue popped up. By good luck, I knew enough to locate the appropriate file and disable it. Yumex has been spending over four hours, downloading and installing more updates than preupgrade did, by almost 100%.

Fedora Installation :: Run Preupgrade To Go From F12 To F13?

Jun 9, 2010

failure: repodata/3a2a6da78e69f9b2608b1c399561b99073baa86b5454618459 ceecb79d58da09-filelists.sqlite.bz2 from preupgrade-updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

I receive this error when I run try to run preupgrade to go from F12 to F13.

It's definitely not an issue with my internet connection, I'm running this from a college campus with a 150mbps connection.

I've tried running it 3 times now, and get this every time. It also gives me the error about not enough space on the boot partition, so I press continue there to move on.

Fedora Installation :: Identify Partition Location - Getting The FEDORA Bootloader To Find The PREUPGRADE Kernel

May 29, 2010

Going from Fedora 12 to 13. Got to the point where I have to reboot to install, system reboots to 12. This is a triple boot system with Open Suse and Mint, and the grub2 bootloader from Mint is the bootloader for the whole shebang. In the "how to use preupgrade" instructions there's a line that says "dentify the drive and partition of your Fedora /boot folder." How? If that sounds odd, consider that in my set up "computer" shows 4 partitions (and with just three operating systems..?). I can mount them, but have a problem telling which sytem is Fedora, Suse or Mint. And getting the FEDORA bootloader to find the PREUPGRADE kernel ... Momma said there'd be days like this.

cat /etc/fstab just returned /dev/sda1 on /boot. I installed Fedora first, before Suse or Mint, so being on the first drive or partition sounds right, but the multiple drives throws me, and "just guessing" doesn't seem like the way to go.

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade From FC8 To FC11?

Oct 14, 2009

it's possible to use preupgrade to go directly from FC8 to FC11.

Also, I'm wondering if this will allow me to avoid formatting my hard drive or not. I'll have backups ready just in case, but was hoping maybe I could get away with not having to do the old two-step shuffle with all my data.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade From F9 To F11 Using Preupgrade-cli?

Oct 17, 2009

I went to upgrade my daughters machine that was running F9 using preupgrade-cli after having issues with mirrors timing out it finally completed the first part with the notification install will start once you reboot. so I rebooted the machine and when it rebooted the grub menu came up with the F9 install selected but with an option for the F11 Upgrade I choose the upgrade and it starts and I see the installation screen with the stop watch and all of a sudden the comp restarts now at the grub menu again and there is no option for F11 upgrade so I boot into F9 try to run it again and it throws a bunch of errors about the rpm database... Encountering this before i run

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb
yum clean all

but yum just blows errors now and if I run rpm -qa it returns nothing. Is there any recovering from this? or should I back up the home dirs and do a fresh install? this is the output of the rebuild


D: rebuilding database /var/lib/rpm into /var/lib/rpmrebuilddb.2367
D: creating directory /var/lib/rpmrebuilddb.2367

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade To F12 Fails?

Nov 19, 2009

I tried a pre-upgrade last night and after downloading 7GB of stuff over night, (don't ask me why it was that much) I rebooted.

Everything looked okay until I got an error message that said that /mnt/sysimage/... (I can't remember exactly what the error message was, sorry) what did not have enough space and needed 19MB more to install the upgrades.

Now, this system quad boots between Fedora, XP, Vista and 7 with grub being the intial boot loader giving me the option of Fedora or the Windows bootloader.

What I don't understand is why the installer (anaconda?) is having a fit about space when I have 8GB RAM and the system partitions are >10GB in size.

Fedora Installation :: Upgraded From F11 To F12 Using Preupgrade?

Jan 8, 2010

I did have F11 on my laptop all running smoothly and everything which is good. But now I've updated from F11 using the preupgrade tool which for what I could see everything downloaded and installed ok, that was until the reboot after the install had completed after seemingly loading F12 it left me with a black screen with a blinking cursor so after a few more reboots with the same out come I decided to see what the loading was stopping at and this is what it came up with


Welcome to Fedora
Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.
Starting udev: [ OK ]
Setting Hostname Fireline.Yuki: [ OK ]
mdadm: No arrays found in config or automatically


And it stops loading after "Starting atd: [ OK ]" I am going to try a CD install either tomorrow or the day after then I'll go back to F11 depending if it works or not.

Fedora :: Preupgrade - Not Enough Space In / Boot ( F12->13 )?

May 27, 2010

I'm not exactly sure that it goes in 'General' but hopefully it'll be alright here Anyways I'm trying to use 'preupgrade' to update my system but it's telling me I don't have enough space on /boot. I've already followed the instructions on the Fedora Wiki for removing unused Kernels and the like to try to free up more space. Here is what I have when I check the space on /boot :

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 198337 71584 126753 37% /boot
Is 126MB not enough? :s

What can I do? Should I be looking to expand the /boot partition's actual size? EDIT: I don't know if it affects anything, but I am running Fedora on an HP Mini 1000 with a 16GB SSD and have about 6.9GBs free overall.

Fedora Installation :: How Much Space For PreUpgrade?

Jun 16, 2010

I know this has been covered a lot but it seems as though there should be a definitive answer and I have yet to find one.How much free space in /boot is required to make preupgrade work? I have 173M, which according to the figures I've seen should be enough, but the preupdate client still complains. Any workarounds? I have already tunefs'ed and deleted old kernels.

Fedora Installation :: Updating From F10 To F13 Via Preupgrade?

Aug 21, 2010

I have downloaded all packages and prepared to update my laptop (Lenovo 3000 N200, F10 x86_64) from F10 to F13 via preupgrade. Everything works fine, until I reboot and go into the upgrade process.

The problem is at the screen which configs NetworkManager. It shows only two interfaces, eth0 and wlan0, but I use a 3G dongle to connect to the internet. I tried feeding random values for the fields, but it does not allow to go beyond without configuring NetworkManager first.

can I work around the upgrade process without configuring NetworkManager? ie. can I do that manually after installing the upgrade?

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade From F12 To F14 Using PreUpgrade?

Nov 17, 2010

today i've tried to PreUpgrade from f12 to f14. In the past i preferred always begin with a fresh install, removing abruptly the preivious one with a CLEAN FRESH installation. (I think it's the best procedure). However i wanted exeperiment with this soution giving it one, two, three N+1 chances. So this is my first up-grade (or "double" upgrade).

My system is
RAM 1024 MB
Video: NVidia
O.S. F12
Desktop: GNOME only (removed unused KDE app)

Fedora :: F12 To F15 Stalls At Re-boot Using PreUpgrade?

May 26, 2011

I am trying to upgrade my F12 system ti F15 using the PreUgrade route. The initial package download goes Ok but on re-boot I can only access my old F12 system. df reports 44M avail in /boot which is on sdd1. Since I do have a multiboot system I checked that there was an "update" folder under "boot" and that it had the update versions of vmlinuz and initrd which it had. I edited "menu 1st" as described in the Pre-Upgrade notes setting the root entry to (hd0,0) as used for my working system and then did a re-boot. I selected the new upgrade entry in the GRUB menu but the system complained that it couldn't find a file. I have tried using root (hd3,0) but this does not work either. What am I doing wrong?

Fedora :: Re-install Grub After Preupgrade

Jul 4, 2011

I was running Fedora 13 and used preupgrade to upgrade to Fedora 15. Unfortunately, probably because my boot partition is not located in the MBR, after rebooting and choosing Fedora from my boot manager, the system hung on a blank screen. I am guessing this is because I need to reinitialize grub.Can I do this from my Fedora 13 CD or do I need to burn a Fedora 15 CD and use rescue mode from there ?
