I have to say I don't exactly understand what you're saying there though. I guess that if Florin wants a nice clean CentOS 5 system it might better to reinstall.
sorry for not being very clear... here is the same thing in -vv mode :)FC5 installed and then updated with all released packages will contain packages that will by the time CentOS-5 is out there, already be newer than whats included in CentOS-5. Which will create problems since those packages will then not get yum updated to whats in the centos-5 repo's.
Add to this the problem of orphans - there might be packages in the installed system that are not included in CentOS-5 at all! There will need to be an audit and work out what these packages are - and if they are even required on the machine.
