I've just posted a Wiki article on updating from 70K to 89K at https://wiki.blagblagblag.org/Upgrade_to_BLAG_90000_Alpha. I had tried and failed twice but was encouraged by the success of shawoho and discovered that the "third time's a charm". :^)

Hey all..

And how's it working, shawoho? I may do the same this week.


It is working just fine, there is nothing you cannot deal with apt through the upgrade...

now that jebba added freshrpms and Kriehn to repos... even better.. so I guess thoggen, audacious-plugins-extras and xine-lib-moles won't be removed, as they are in freshrpms...

so keep in touch and happy gnu ;)

I didn't quite have the luck of shawoho and extraspecialbitter on this one.

It went well until the first apt-get dist-upgrade. It downloaded the fc9 packages, and the first half dozen or so installed nicely. But on perl (if this is important) it hung. Eventually I had to kill -9 apt-get.

After that, any time I or apt-get tried to run rpm, it would hang and I'd have to kill it (though it seemed to work anyhow).

But by then I had many duplicate package installs and several missing dependencies.

What would cause rpm to fail like this??

Maybe killing it fried the database.

Try rebuilddb?

hej,

what happened to Miro? Suprisingly video playback now works perfectly but where have the sidebar, search, subscription and download features gone?
Has ist something to do with sqlite (maybe FF3)?

You sure it was actually hung? Cuz perl is pretty big and can take awhile to install.

Code:
rm /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
rpm --rebuilddb

Well maybe I was too hasty in killing it, but it was sitting at 100% with no processor activity according to top. And the behaviour was the same for every package -- large or small -- after.

one thing I did differently from my previous attempts was to make sure that my fresh 70K install was minimal. On the package selection screen, I de-selected "Web Server" (which I normally always install) and selected "Customize Later" (I typically pull as much as I can from the CD at the onset). My thinking was to give apt as little to upgrade from 70K to 90K as possible, grabbing the custom packages from the 90K repo after the upgrade was completed. I'm not sure if this approach will help you, but it worked for me.

Yeah, I did the same. I left out X and anything not strictly necessary to perform the upgrade. Maybe I left out too much.

Anyhow, I did it a second time and it worked fine. I feel vindicated -- whatever went wrong on the first try had nothing to do will me killing the apt-get process: perl took a couple of seconds to install this time.

As it stands, the package "fuse" is held back and I came to a strange situation in which doing an init 3 (and an init 1) wouldn't kill the X server. Runlevel 6 was too much for X to handle though ;)

Lots of updates in the 90k repo.

You can also try any of these mirrors:

http://cascompany.blagblagblag.org/90000/
http://leaseweb.blagblagblag.org/90000/
http://shinjiru.blagblagblag.org/90000/
http://singlehop.blagblagblag.org/90000/
http://cascompany.blagblagblag.org/90000/
http://serverpronto.blagblagblag.org/90000/

This is a temporary list. I'll keep the ones that work best.

-Jeff

Uh. I didn't make a changelist--lots of updated packages and a slightly pared down comps.xml, but i still have a ways to go there.
