Updating Fedora to Mageia (Possible?).

Postby zekemx » Nov 17th, '20, 04:53

Hello,

Is it possible to add mageia repositories to fedora and use something like "urpmi --auto --auto-update --replacefiles' ?

Possibly using dnf?.

I would like to update to mageia wiout loosing everything or having to reinstall..

Regards
zekemx

No, that's not possible. Your best bet is probably to keep your /home partition and then reinstall.

I actually wanted to upgrade the raspberry pi version.

Is there a mageia raspberry pi .IMG file somewhere?. I found a very old one that does not boot.

I'm not aware that there are more recent images available.

One contributor created his own development images: https://github.com/markVnl/Mageia_SBC
Current cauldron packages should be available for ARM: http://pkgsubmit.mageia.org/arm-status.html#
