It looks like the latest f15 dracut to ever make it to -stable was
009-12. I ran across this when I found a laptop that hadn't been on
in a while and needed an upgrade to f17. The trick, of course, is
that convertfs went into dracut-009-13. After -13, -14 and -15 were
built. The Wiki links to the former bodhi page for -15 :
but apparently it never got enough karma to move to stable. I'm
presuming that when f15 went EOL all the bodhi pages went away too,
so the link went dead.
That leaves us with no yum upgrade path from 15 to 17 (due to
infrastructure details, not functionality). I think that means
preupgrade won't work either (though I use RAID-1 for /boot, so I
don't know too much about preupgrade).
preupgrade should work as fine as it always does. It doesn't need
Suggestions for the best way forward? I was thinking some
constructive options are:
Change the link to:
1) out-of-cycle push to stable
2) place in -testing (easy enough to document, doesn't help trivial
3) host elsewhere on Fedora infrastructure (ditto)
It's in koji. There's no way we are pushing anything to any eol
release, so those are out. I suppose someone could stick it on a people
page? but koji should work fine...
4) host -15 off Fedora infrastructure (not awesome in my book)
We could always tell folks that they have to step through f16 first
or do a DVD upgrade, but those are somewhat less elegant and much
more bandwidth intensive.
Just point to the koji build?
