Fedora team have released next version of Fedora i.e Jules Verne Fedora 16. If you already have Fedora 15 installed on your machine, there is an easy way of upgrading your Linux distribution to the latest version Fedora 16.
Steps are as follows:
Update your Fedora 15 system
Run the following command to install any updates to your Fedora 15 distribution.
su -c 'yum update'
Install the ‘preupgrade’ tool
Preupgrade is a GUI tool that walks you through the upgrade process.
su -c 'yum install preupgrade'
Start the preupgrade tool
You can run the preupgrade tool by entering the command in the terminal or via the menu.
The preupgrade tool will then start downloading the release info; the installer images; determine which packages to download; and download the packages.
When you reboot back into Fedora, it will start the Anaconda installer and the upgrade process will start.
No user intervention is required at this stage as everything is done automatically by the Anaconda installer.
The installer will do the dependency check of packages and start upgrading your system.
Post upgrade configuration include installing the boot loader which is automatically installed in the Master Boot Record (MBR) of your machine.
Once the upgrade process is finished, you can log into your brand new Fedora 16 Linux system.
