[MAQeia] Upgrade To Mageia 3 From Mageia 2

Postby rollercomsolutions » May 24th, '13, 16:23

I have made a single webinar video with a simple approach to upgrading your Mageia 2 to Mageia 3 http://rollercomsolutions.enterthemeeting.com/e/mtg?A1P3FN

This is a two part video series of how I upgraded from Mageia 2 to Mageia 3. I enjoy sharing knowledge with the community and I believe these webinar videos are a great way to do just that :) Some people like to see the process with their own eyes instead of reading through a guide so here we go. If you use KDE and don't recognize my desktop i'm simply using LXDE because it runs much faster with the laptop i'm using when i'm pushing it to its limits :D

Part One http://rollercomsolutions.enterthemeeting.com/e/mtg?4FL7H8 |

Video Notes
Run the following command as root user (type su in terminal then your root user password).
Code: Select all
mgaapplet-upgrade-helper --new_distro_version=3

Reboot your computer and select the "Mageia 3 Upgrade Preparation" boot option.

Part Two http://rollercomsolutions.enterthemeeting.com/e/mtg?NG9WTA |

:o It Worked Like A Charm :)
For detailed instructions and different use cases then the one in the video, see this wiki page https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Mageia_3_Release_Notes#Upgrading_from_Mageia_2

Thanks for sharing :)

FWIW, next time maybe you could use a standard shell, that custom zsh thingie at the beginning may be a little bit distracting for novice users ...
Or maybe just cut it out from the screencast, no need to redo the whole thing ;)
Cauldron is not for the faint of heart!
Caution: Hot, bubbling magic inside. May explode or cook your kittens!
