I finally got round to upgrading my desktop machine to Fedora 19. The experience was pretty similar to upgrade from Fedora 17 to Fedora 18.
This time I had to remove FireFox, as it was holding on to Fedora 18 packages. Once I removed and re-added it I could complete a “yum update”. Things seem to be OK.
The DropBox repository is lagging behind again…
I still think it’s better to do clean installations, but I don’t have time to do that now. Perhaps when I get back from South America I’ll do it properly.
For those eager beavers out there, you can now get hold of Fedora 19 Alpha from the pre-release location.
The release notes can be found here. I’m keen to check out the improvements to MATE in version 1.6, as this is now my standard desktop.
Update: It installs in Oracle VirtualBox and the guest additions install correctly, so it’s looking good so far.
