how you can upgrade your Fedora 12 system to Fedora 13. The upgrade procedure works for both desktop and server installations.

1 Preliminary Note

log in as root, or if you log in with a regular user, type

su

to become root

2 Upgrading To Fedora 13 (Desktop)

First we must upgrade the rpm

yum update rpm

install the latest updates

yum -y update

clean the yum cache

yum clean all

during yum -y update, you should reboot the system now

reboot

After the reboot, log in as root again, either directly

su

Install preupgrade.

yum install preupgrade

call it

preupgrade

3 Upgrading To Fedora 13 (Server)

First we must upgrade the rpm package

yum update rpm

install the latest updates

yum -y update

clean the yum cache

yum clean all
reboot

After the reboot, log in as root again, either directly

su

Install preupgrade.

yum install preupgrade

call it

preupgrade

To upgrade, append the release string to the preupgrade-cli command

preupgrade-cli "Fedora 13 (Goddard)"

Preupgrade will also take care of your RPMFusion packages, so all you have to do after preupgrade has finished is to reboot

reboot
