Upgrade Fedora 7 to Fedora 8

Before upgrading your OS version we must take the backup of our system firstly. For upgrading to Fedora 8 from Fedora 7 follow the given below commands:

Update your packages:

yum update

Run following command to clear the yum cache:

yum clean all

Then run following command to install fedora 8 release packages:

rpm -Uvh

rpm -Uvh

Now this is the time to run upgrade over the machine:

yum upgrade

If it stops with an error like this one:
---> Package orca.i386 0: set to be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution

Error: Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = is needed by package yelp

simply uninstall the package that is causing the problem (in this case yelp) (I only had to do this with the yelp package which doesn't seem to be overly important)...

yum remove yelp

Ref. :

For upgrade from Fedora8 to Fedora 9, use below given release RPMs and other are same as above

rpm -Uhv

Upgrading from Fedora 9 to Fedora 10, follow below given URL:
