Updating fedora 9 to 10
Do I need to remove Fedora 14 and the associated packages from the SSD so I have a 'clean' install? I am a novice at this so please make you suggestions as simple as possible. If you kept /home, you'll be told that the home directory exists; agree to use it, but don't let it be cleared out.
The jump from Fedora 14 to 21 is just too much to expect it to work. To see if your machine plays nice with Fedora 21 burn a copy of the Live CD or put it on a bootable USB stick. To 'nuke' everything best bet is to format the drive when you install. The DVD loads and I get the 'Start Fedora Live' screen and then I get the Fedora logo and then usually nothing. Registered Linux user 266351 Shuttle DS81 Intel H81 Slim Mini PC Barebone, Intel i5-4690S Haswell Quad-Core 3.2 GHz, Kingston 16GB DDR3 1600 Laptop Memory, SAMSUNG 850 EVO m SATA 500GB SSD Google Fiber gigabit internet I checked the specs for your Acer and it apparently only has 1GB of RAM, awfully skimpy these days.
I would suggest you back-up any data you want to save, create a LIve CD, and use the install to hardware feature of the CD to build a new system. F14 is long gone now so "update" is not going to find the repository.
I don't think "fedup" was introduced until F18 or so.
but the best, and make my life more easier is by using yum command to update Fedora. you may need to log in as root user or use su command to execute command on example below 1.
Try execute yum update command as show on example below, see the output...Please verify its path and try again I am a complete novice when it comes to Fedora so any help would be appreciated.
