Remote migration from CentOS 6 to Fedora 16
Revision 1 vs. Revision 2
Changelog: Added an image / thumbnail type thing
r1 r2 1 2 3 4 1 5 Recently I wanted to migrate a machine from CentOS 6 (i.e. EL6) to Fedora 16 but I didn't have physical access to the machine. Against my better judgement I decided to attempt to do it remotely with ``yum``. I found a pretty nice guide for upgrading from `CentOS 5 to Fedora 12 <http://geek.co.il/wp/2010/02/12/upgrading-centos-5-to-fedora-12>`_ . Fortunately CentOS 6 to F16 is even easier. The following is a *roughly outline* of how to perform such a migration. 2 6 3 7 .. warning:: There is a really really high probability of butchering the whole operating system and having to reinstall from physical media. This is not a step-by-step guide... it's only a rough outline of the steps involved. You need to have experience with RedHat based systems. 4 8 5 9 1. To make things easier, faster and to avoid some weird conflicts with m17n remove all m17n, gcc, eclipse, gnome, rhn packages, abrt, and -devel packages.
