Q.  How do I upgrade from Fedora 9 to Fedora 10?

A.  First, here are some things that didn't work:

- Running preupgrade
- There is no upgrade option on the CD

So failing official ways I downloaded

fedora-release-10-1.noarch.rpm
And did:
rpm -e --nodeps fedora-release-9 rpm -ivh fedora-release-10-1.noarch.rpm
yum clean all yum upgrade
This almost worked but there was problem with glibc and glibc-common. The solution to this was to download the glibc and glibc-common rpms and install them with:
rpm -ivh glibc*.rpm glibc-common*.rpm
The I redid:
yum clean all yum upgrade
And it worked!
