Upgrading to FC6, off a hard disk partition. Text install goes without error, until the Package Installation screen appears. There's a popup:

That was 36 hours ago!

No disk access lights flashing.

This is a slow old machine 400mz, 128meg ram, but it runs fc5.

Any suggestions?


On my machine with 2 gig of ram, an upgrade took almost 7 hours. A clean install a few weeks later took less than 4 hours complete.

My point is that an upgrade takes much longer than a clean install.

Due to the move to M$ Exchange Server,
   anything that is a priority, please phone.
