just in case anyone asks

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.
