Updating fedora core 5

Most commonly you will use the following command in the case of a security vulnerability, or perhaps just to verify that you’re running the most up-to-date kernel: is the package you’re updating!Assuming your server needed a new kernel and was thus upgraded, reboot your server to complete the process!This will bring up Anaconda, much like a normal Fedora Core install.After selecting your language, your mouse and keyboard, and your monitor, Anaconda will search for existing Red Hat Linux installs.This method is arguably the most tested and most supported way of upgrading your system.To start an upgrade process using the Fedora Core installer, boot your PC to the installation media (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, floppy, PXE).Next the installer will check your installed packages for things that it needs to upgrade.This process may take a while so don't get worried if you don't see anything happen on the screen other than the hourglass rotating.

The first screen you may see asks if you'd like to migrate your ext2 partitions to ext3. Figure 3-4 shows this screen, asking if I'd like to migrate my ext2 /boot partition to ext3.If you click Continue, Anaconda will display a progress screen where you can track the progress of the upgrade process, as well as see the individual package names that are upgraded.Be sure to watch for requests to insert the next CD.--------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: - Update to rdesktop-1.5.0 - Fixes corruption and other artifacts when Desktop Effects are enabled.--------------------------------------------------------------------- * Fri Dec 8 2006 Behdad Esfahbod - Initial build.
