Major upgrade for ROME Febuary 25Sunday 25 February 2024
ROME users attention please:
The process to copy cooker repositories to rolling (ROME) will begin soon.
We suggest to not update the system or install software until it’s finished.
We’ll keep you informed when it will be the time to perform distro-sync again.
The command that you will have to run in console is:
sudo dnf clean all ; sudo dnf --allowerasing dsync
As always when using
--allowerasing pay attention to what packages are removed and write down the names of any you may wish to install again. Ususally there won’t be any as what should be removed are packages that were renamed and so forth.
Comments and feedback:
Open new topic, with a descriptive title, in Support category.
Note: If you see any dialog about any configuration file changing please read the message. Usually the default choice is the safe choice. The files
/etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group, /etc/gshadow >>> always keep the existing file of those. If you select to use the new file you will get an empty file and lose your users, groups, and passwords.

Upgrading Rock/4.3 to Rock/5.0Saturday 25 November 2023
A fresh install is always preferred over a system (distribution) upgrade. Always, always, always.
Quote from wise contributor:
“You will find that backup your data and doing a fresh install will result in more quicker and less troublesome outcome than to try distribution (system) upgrade (distro-sync or dsync) and spend ages to fix what can go wrong, not speaking of leftovers and every sort of junk that may got collected over the time. And having to do a fresh install anyway.”
Users can upgrade their system if they follow the instructions exactly and if the user is willing to deal with any issue arising from users own customization of their system. It’s impossible for other people to know how to fix your own customization so be aware that you will need to get that sorted by yourself. It is much wiser to back up any data, files, ect. you wish to keep and do a fresh install.
