All tests performed with the following:
Windows 7 Ult. 64bit Host
VMware 7.1.3 build-324285
New VM using Typical, Default settings. EXCEPT i always choose the "Install OS Later" option instead of EasyInstall
First Test - Clean install of Fedora 14 and Amahi 6
Install went well. Not a hitch that i could see.
Installed Fusion Free and Non Free right away, and the install went MUCH faster than Amahi5/FC12
EDIT: I just realized my network configuration changed. I saw on another thread that virtual box sometimes have issues with this. Wonder if this is the same issue on VMware as well?
Second Test - Clean install of Fedora 12/Amahi 5 - Then upgrade to f14/Amahi 6
First attempt using the F14 DVD failed. After reboot i get "Kernel Panick - Not Syncing: attempted to kill init"
Now trying a direct update to F14 using the guide at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum
This is not recommended. You should go from 12 to 13 then to 14. But i want to see what happens.
First attempt gave me an error. Did not write it down though
Issued the above command to install the rail. FAIL!! I must have missed something.
Using the rpmreaper utility i found that "php_mbstring" and "perl-HTML-Parser" where "missing". Tried to install them and update them. yum said they where either installed or up to date. So i marked em both for deletion with rpmreaper.
Currently yum is updating the system. -EDIT: Yum upgraded me to f13 just fine. I think the "missing" packages may have something to do with that. Decided to go the safe route this time. Will try another "clean f12 to f14" upgrade after this.
Gona have another read over that thread
