NOTE: I've only done this (RH 7.3 to FC 1) once, and that was on a
pretty minimal install (one of my test UML boxes).
1) Change /etc/apt/sources.list to this:
rpm http://apt.kspei.com fedora/1/i386 os updates stable
"os" and "updates" are FC1, "stable" is fedora.us. Add other
repositories as needed. (See my previous posts on installing apt
2) apt-get update && apt-get install apt
3) Install Red Hat's gpg key. (Some things are still signed with it
instead of the Fedora key for some reason.)
cd /etc/apt/gpg \
&& links -source \
(The next time you run apt, it will import that and any other files
that begin with gpg-pubkey- in /etc/apt/gpg. See
Be sure to grab the keys for any other repository you use
(freshrpms, my "kspei" stuff, rpm.livna.org, etc.).
4) apt-get install kernel\#2.4.22-1.2129.nptl
(Note: I didn't actually do this last time, so the next step just
installed 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl, which I then had to upgrade, so I
think this order will work better.)
5) apt-get dist-upgrade
It *should* work. Note that upgrading RH9->FC1 had a minor issue with
some perl stuff moving around causing conflicts, but I didn't see
anything like that going from RH 7.3 to FC1 for whatever reason.
