3 Comments 1. Reply The Little Pirate Posted June 2, 2011 at 7:22 PM Hi JR, I updated from F14 with preupgrade. But the installation didnt finish automatically. I had to manually download the broken RPMs (downloaded by preupgrade, due to my bad connection) and finish the installation. Then I had to generate intrafms img manually from a live cd and also generate the modules (lsmod was blank after I booted up successfully). Then the graphics driver was failing. I tried a number of things but nothing worked. Finally did `yum remove Xorg` and then installed it again with the keyboard and mouse drivers. But now, Gnome 3 seems behaving a bit strangely. Theres no clock in the middle of the upper panel. Also, NetworkManager doesnt start up automatically. What should I do? Reply JR Posted June 2, 2011 at 8:13 PM Hi Little Pirate, Sounds like a very unlucky upgrade process, but you could try install whole gnome with following command:
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

If some packages are missing groupinstall should install all those. Reply

The Little Pirate Posted June 2, 2011 at 9:31 PM Hi JR, I forgot to mention but even the repositories werent updated to F15.When I had look in Software Sources, it showed me F14 repos and even a few F13 disabled repos. So I decided to backup my data and perform a clean install. Anyway, know how to solve this repository problem? Im rather curious and might also prove helpful for somebody. Thanks.
