Re: Migrating from RH9 Legacy to CentOS 3

Quoting David Eisner <cradle@xxxxxxx>:
With the end of Legacy support for RH9, I'd like to migrate my Fedora Legacified RH9 box to Centos 3.
I've used these directions in the past to successfully migrate from non-legacy RH9 to Centos 3.1 using yum: http://www.owlriver.com/tips/centos-31-ex-rhl-9/ Any thoughts on whether this should also work with the .legacy packages?
Should work fine. Sometimes you will find a dependency issue to work around. Often that means removing the old package. Sometimes it might mean changing yum's "exactarch=1" to "exactarch=0" to get around a dependency issue caused by architecture changes (from i386 to noarch or vise-versa, or from 32 bit to 64 bit, etc). Generally it runs smoothly, but occassionally some thought must be put into resolving some dependency issue... One thing I don't see mentioned much. First, do a "yum update" or "yum upgrade" on the RHL 9 repo. Then do a "yum clean" to free up disk space. Then do your yum upgrade to Centos. Otherwise, you will have your old RHL yum cache taking up a lot of space...
Thanks in advance. -David
