Upgrading to Fedora Core 1 with Yum
Posted on: 11/05/2003 04:49 PM

Fedora Core 1 is also available as Yum repository

Yum is an automatic updater and package installer/remover for rpm systems. It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages. It makes it easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update each one using rpm.


To upgrade to Fedora Core 1 from Red Hat Linux:

1) Download Yum

- Yum for Red Hat Linux 9
- Yum for Red Hat Linux 8.0
- Yum for Red Hat Linux 7.3

2) Install Yum with rpm -ivh yum*

3) Add the following sources to your /etc/yum.conf

[core]
name=Fedora Core 1
baseurl=ftp://ftp.fi.muni.cz/pub/linux/fedora/linux/core/1/i386/os/

[updates]
