Upgrade in progress...

Yesterday I read about the next iteration of Fedora (11) being discussed as en-route. As I'm still on 8 I reckon it is a good time to take the plunge and do an upgrade.

So after a yum update to make sure my FC8 is up to date, I launched the preupgrade program I mentioned in an earlier post and started it doing its' thing to upgrade me to FC10.

Needless to say, downloading and installing an entire OS and lots of software with it is going to take some time, so left it running overnight, dozy me forgot to check it before leaving the flat this morning.

Needless to say, I ran my backup scripts before running the upgrade stuff as the forum recommendations seem to be for FC8->FC10 best route is a format + install rather than upgrade. Given FC10 supports ext4 filesystem which (from my breif reading of reports and graphs online) seems would give me a performance boost.
