Fedora 9 Install by YUM

Posted on Posted in linux, personal, system administration, tv

Thanks to this post for the instructions.

# yum update
# yum clean all
# I like to repeated update and clean all a second time to make sure everything got updated
# Run the following command to update the yum repo on your box:
rpm -Uhv http://mirror.liberty.edu/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-9-2.noarch.rpm http://mirror.liberty.edu/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-9.0.0-1.noarch.rpm
# Next I had to do a “yum clean all” again before it picked up the change
# Next do a yum -y update

No major problems here … I had lighttpd installed, which was causing the update to fail 4 dependencies.

# rpm -e lighttpd

Fixed that … now to download the 1,200 some packages …

Another update tomorrow.

  1. Thanks for the link … wish I had read the following before wasting my time.

    NOTE (11 May 2008):
    NVidia has NOT released an driver compatible with the Xorg released in Fedora 9. It is NOT recommended to attempt to install the driver at this time. Doing so may prevent you from accessing the graphical x-server.

    lol.
