I have downloaded the kernel-2.6.24.3-34.fc8.i686rpm and ran this command: rpm -ivf kernel-2.6.24.3-34.fc8.i686rpm and received the following warnings: user mockbuild does not exist - using root group mockbuild does not exist - using root Do I need to create user and group named mockbuild? I have utilized yum to install kernel, kernel-devel, and kernel-headers from 2.6.23.1-4.fc8.i686 to 2.6.24.3-34.fc8.i686.I also downloaded patch-2.6.24.3.bz2 from kernel.org, am I going to the right direction for this upgrade? However, I encountered this error: Open: /tmp/initrd.m V4002/lib/modules/2.6.24.3-34.fc8: Permission denied FATAL: Could not open /tmp/initrd.m V4002/lib/modules/2.6.24.3-34.fc8/temp for writing: Permission denied Installed: kernel i6860:2.6.24.3-34.fc8 when using the following command: yum -y install kernel-2.6.24.3-34.fc8 I didn't encountered any errors when installing kernel-devel and kernel-headers 2.6.24.3-34.fc8.i686.

I have been writing about web technology and software development since 2001.

Now update from 3.0.1 to 3.1.5: Upon first launch of the new version of Thunderbird, you may find that some of the plugins you have installed are no longer compatible.

The Lightning plugin for calendar functionality in Thunderbird that I had installed was too old and was disabled by Thunderbird 3.1.5, so I had to update it.

I was puzzle to see the fc9 requirement on compiz-kde.0.6.2.

Before this, when I was in the process to update kernel, I executed yum install kernel and not sure if this might have an effect to compiz-kde module. Dependency issues have not completely disappeared from Fedora although the situation is now much better than it used to be.

Still you need to point Yum to the repositories for the next distro to upgrade to.
