After all the Pi excitement, back to (relative) normality..
I upgraded my main (x86_64) systems to Fedora 17, using YUM, as usual.. I have found that using the DVD is messy, and sometimes leaves the system in a ‘hybrid’ state, and then the DVD versions of many packages need to be updated, in any case!
Compared to previous upgrades, this one was less trouble than before.. I only had to manually erase an old set of compiz RPMs to avoid serious conflicts…
Using dracut to automagically reassign the /usr directory structure (a change with F17) worked fine, as well..
Not too happy with the rather odd changes to grub2 with version 2.0… The boot menu seems to be actually less user-friendly now – if that is at all possible… OK for (re)booting systems on the desktop, but not so hot for remote ‘headless’ systems, if you (like me) always compile your own kernel, with more than three versions available to choose from at boot time..
