just in case anyone asks

June 15, 2009

I updated to fedora 11 from the mishmash my laptop was today. I did it in three steps b/c I was going out for dinner.

All of these steps were run in screen:

1. yum –downloadonly update

2. yum update

3. yum groupupdate “GNOME Desktop Environment”

then I removed a bunch of packages I didn’t want and checked to see if evolution works with vfolders of vfolders (it doesn’t). Maybe I’ll try thunderbird out.

But, for the record – yum updating in place worked – but do it in screen b/c of the fontconfig issue that’s documented on the common issues page.
