Upgrading Centos 4.2 to 4.3

What is in the best way to upgrade Centos 4.2 to 4.3 with InterWorx?
Can it be done? Or is it not possible at the moment?

The upgrade should be automatic as the CentOS guys publish their new centos-release RPM.


I should add you can try a “yum update” from the command line to see if you can grab the new RPM manually which will initiate the upgrade.


You are right:

login as: root
root@cp.xxxxx.xxx's password:
Last login: Tue Mar 21 20:52:20 2006 from 111.222.333.444
[root@cp ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 4.3 (Final)
[root@cp ~]#

So I have to reboot the machines tonight.

Hmmm I got a problem here on an other machine (Not Iworx :wink:

root@xxxx ~# rpm -Uvh <a href="http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/4.3/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/centos-release-4-3.2.i386.rpm">http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/4.3/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/centos-release-4-3.2.i386.rpm</a>

Anybody got a clue to on how to fix this (I had this problem already a few months ago, but was not able to fix it after lots of googling etc)

EDIT: Spelling check…
