Fedora Core 7 Upgrade Problems


Upgrading FC6 -> F7 is not painless at all (whereas FC5 -> FC6 was a breeze). The things that needed sorting out were :

  • Samba shares no longer work - not sure why. Quickest to rebuild /etc/samba/smb.conf rather than sort it out properly.
  • xorg.conf file fails (causing even greeter login to fail). Probably due to wacom driver not being fully updated in the distribution
  • libata complains about CDROM drive - stalling booting process. There's sure to be more, but that's a flavour.
