Re: Upgrade Fedora 6 to 14 (remotely)



Dante,

I know this is not the best time for a joke, but it appears the hosting
vendor didn't even ask if you preferred Phillips or slotted. Just on a
lark, is the server with the ancient Fedora in possession of hot swappable
drives? If so there may be a path you can use by just getting someone to
swap the disk drives, assuming physical access to the server for you is
impossible.

Of course you would have to be careful to have all the routing set up
correctly, but it may be a way out, no?

I know how you feel. I just upgraded my movie theatre to digital cinema
from
35mm film and the cinema server (the gadget that you load the movie into)
runs
on Fedora Core 5. The literature said that it was "linux-based" but you
can
imagine my surprise when I first saw it booting up and it said "Fedora Core
5".

Oh well. It works well so far and it's not hooked up to any outside
network so
what it runs on is pretty much irrelevant as long as it does the job.
