Hi JB and others,
# yum distro-sync
as you suggested me, i would try to understand the issue with preupgrade.
I have restarted my nb and i see it hangs on infamous:
waiting for hardware to initialize
like in Ashley M. Kirchner thread.
I would know if it makes any sense to insert these flags and the others you
suggeted to Ashley
ignore_loglevel enforcing=0 initcall_debug
in grub.conf Upgrade line:
title Upgrade to Fedora 14 (Laughlin)
kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade
Yesterday I tried to boot a F14 CD live and it worked.
My lspci regarding smbus is:
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) SMBus Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Presario C700
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 19
Memory at 92404c00 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
I/O ports at 3000 [size=32]
Kernel driver in use: i801_smbus
Kernel modules: i2c-i801
complete lspci and dmesg are here
My Best Regards
