Yesterday morning I upgraded my work laptop from Fedora 9 to Fedora 10. Other than a couple of issues outlined below, the experience seemed reasonable:
- The bootloader (grub) did not upgrade correctly, leaving me at a grub prompt when the computer started. Apparently this is a common issue. The fix was simple in my case:
VMware Workstation refused to heal from the upgrade. Usually VMware Workstation just heals itself after I update the kernel, but for some reason it refused to heal itself. Again a simple fix:
vmware modconfig --console --install-all
- Immediately after installing Fedora (on only the second day after its release) there were a ridiculous number of updates to be downloaded, so I basically the first thing I did with the system was let it download and install updates for three hours.
