Upgrading to Fedora 7 didn’t take this long and neither did Fedora 6, but that’s ok – as long as it happens. It’s nearly done with the dependency checking. It’s been getting closer and closer to the end of the bar. Part of me thinks it may be stuck, but after waiting 10 hours to get this far, I don’t want to stop if there’s a chance it will start installing tonight or even tomorrow morning. Before the next upgrade I hope to have more RAM, as I think that’s probably part of the reason why it’s taking so long. Just wanted to update how long it’s taking both for anyone else in this situation and for myself so when Fedora 9 comes out, I can remember how long Fedora 8 took.
I’ve seen some stuff on the mailing lists that implies Fedora 8 seems to be taking a really long time to upgrade for a lot of people….
