Step 1, undo what has been done and never use a force or nodeps! Step 2, upgrade up2date to centos 3 (more on this when I find our notes) Step 3, update all packages which are not customized. Step 4, baby steps on customized configs/packages. ( you will need a lot of compat rpms to work with.) Step 5, get upgraded to 4, then 5 We have upgraded all of out 7.x and 9 systems to centos 4. Except one, it has sendmail, apache, etc incompatibilities. > -----Original Message----- > From: centos-bounces at centos.org [mailto:centos-bounces at centos.org] On > Behalf Of Jerry Geis > Sent: Friday, May 02, 2008 2:47 PM > To: CentOS ML > Subject: [CentOS] RH9 to centos 5 386 > > I am testing the likelyhood of updating a couple RH9 systems to centos 5 > 386. > I found at document that talked about updating to centos 4. steps being: > 1.) backup > 2.) > rpm --import > http://pubmirrors.reflected.net/centos/5/os/i386/RPM-GPG-KEY-centOS-5 > rpm -Uvh --nodeps > http://pubmirrors.reflected.net/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/yum-3.0.5- > 1.el5.centos.5.noarch.rpm > rpm -i --nodeps --force > http://pubmirrors.reflected.net/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/centos-release-5- > 1.0.el5.centos.1.i386.rpm > yum upgrade > > Everything was progressing until I did tte "yum upgrade" > I got an error about not finding a yum package. > > "There was a problem importing one of the python modules > required to run yum.
