|Upgrading Fedora Core Major Revision
||[Jun. 29th, 2005|01:50 am]
I'm on Fedora Core 2, and I'd like to upgrade to Fedora Core 4. However, I don't want to have to burn all of the CDs in order to do so. Is there a media-less way to do this? Like... through up2date or yum?|
There are a couple of reasons I want to do this. They are both specific programs, which require a pygtk2 version >= 2.4: gDesklets 0.35rc1 and Gourmet 0.8.5.3-1.
rpm -q pygtk2 gives me
yum install pygtk2 gives me the following:
Therefore, I'm assuming (hah) that pygtk2 >= 2.4 does not exist for Fedora Core 2, at least in RPM form.
# yum install pygtk2
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
pygtk2 is installed and is the latest version.
No actions to take
I did compile the latest PyGTK from http://www.pygtk.org/, but RPM still thinks I have 2.2.0-1... So, there doesn't seem to be a way around my issue. Therefore, the next logical step is to upgrade to a version of Fedora Core that has an rpm version of pygtk2 >= 2.4, which would be FC4.
If I'm making things more complicated than they have to be, please tell me so. Thanks.
