    Redhat 9 upgrade to Fedora


    Since Redhat 9 is basically dead, has anyone had good luck upgrading from redhat 9 to Fedora? I know you can do this but, I've also heard there were some problems associated w/ this process.

    Also, I'm assuming Fedora is offering regular update support?

    Thanks,
    Clem C

    I would recommend, if you can get a hold of it, going to Fedora core 1 (not 2). This is a gentle upgrade. Going from Redhat 9 to Fedora Core 2 means jumping kernel versions (to 2.6.n), and I found a few niggles when I did (from core 1 to core 2).

    As to updates, go to the fedora site and click on updates.

    have fun

    I upgraded my RH9 to FC1.
    Goes without prolems, although you will need to download a lot.
