I don't see why you couldn't upgrade.

lolerskates, that just answered my question. Fear not! You can upgrade; you will just have to upgrade your skills as well. Reading material is on it's way.

Oh yeah, you really should build a test box for this in case something goes wrong...

I think his issue is that FC7 is no longer supported and the YUM repos only have the older versions. Not that this is an excuse for being a dick in the response to those helping.


Truthfully, there shouldn't be a reason you couldn't find these at places like rpmfind and phone.net.

Heck, I still find stuff from SuSE 9.0 out there (which is way older then FC7)

Not acording to GoDaddy who offers a free upgrade of Fedora 7 right inside the site manager

It is hardly a surprise. I just upgraded a server last fall that was running FC2. You know how it is Crash, as long as the server runs there is no major reason to upgrade.

Unfortunately the Fedora development cycle moves far faster than the utility of the release deprecates. RHEL costs money and Fedora is free as long as you can tolerate the lack of support after a while.

and you're believing IMO, one of the worlds worst web hosts.

I suppose if you're using their tools, I can see why they'd wipe you. So have you changed the scope of this yet again in that you're looking to install this on one of their servers?

I would have gone with something that had support or offered an LTS. However most hosting providers have been set up to use CentOS which is the "free" RHEL. Kinda surprised to see somebody selling hosting service with Fedora actually.

Honestly, I wasn't impressed with Fedora back when I used it. (2-4 time frame). It just didn't do it for me.

Honestly, that is one thing that kind of annoys me with Linux. They put out new releases too often. They really should slow full blown releases down and just issue updates to existing ones. It would make the server admins job easier.

I completely agree with you issues regarding the release schedule. But it is what it is and all we can do is adapt.

BTW the FC2 upgrade was to CentOS 5 so I am good for a while. I think several companies went the Fedora route before they really thought it through. It was free an that is a far as the thought process went.

Incredibly, people are still trying to help you and you're still pushing back. Unbelievable.

Linux is not windows. You can easily upgrade versions without touching your install because you are only upgrading your kernel .... unlike MS, the kernel is not the OS.

<sigh>

You might want to look at the steps here to fix YUM.

http://www.fedorafaq.org/f7/#installsoftware

Amazingly two of those mirrors are fine.

Even then you can STILL upgrade windows without breaking your shit. In nearly ALL cases upgrading works the same. The only time you ever have an issue is if you have applications that just wont work with the newer version of windows. There are a few more caviats to upgrading windows, but it isn't much different.

If GoDaddy just wipes the shit then that is insane. No hosting provider in their right mind would cripple their customers if they wanted serious service especially in the VPS world.

I still want to know why his Yum is broken. I can easily do apt installs from Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. I don't buy that "Fedora 7 is old" as a reason for YUM to not work. I just don't buy into why this is so freaking difficult.

I'm not pushing back. GoDaddy has a big old "click here to learn how to upgrade your OS but be ward this will re partition your hard drive."

When i get into the office later today i'll post up the screen shot of what the yum update says.

Repository base is listed more than once in the configuration

This should have clued you in to what was going on. You need to fix your repository list it looks like. I know this is a CentOS board but the idea is the same.

What is in your /etc/yum.repo.d/ directory?

my Repo.D folder contains

fedora-core.repo
fedora-development.repo
fedora-updates-testing.repo
fedora-updates.repo
fedora.repo
turbopanel.repo

What should i be looking at for your links. Theirs a lot to digest and i only have marginal knowledge of Fedora.



Note: I apologize if any of my past responses came of curt. The office (outside of this issue) has been extra busy and i guess the stress was getting to me. Intentionally or not.
