Upgrading Fedora 23 to 24

Fedora 24 was released a few days ago.

I've upgraded one of my machines. The others are soon to follow. One problem I discovered was that the default Gnome-X-Session does no longer support my touchpad, disabling tap-to-click for me. Switching to the Wayland session worked very well and I have yet to hit any glitch.

If you're running Fedora 23 you can easily upgrade to Fedora 24 running the following console commands. But before that, make sure your system is fully upgraded and rebooted, especially if you installed some kernel updates.

sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=24 --allowerasing

The --allowerasing argument allows some packages to be deleted during the process. I had some dangling haskell packages, that needed to be deleted. No problem there.

Once all the downloads are done, type sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot to reboot your system starting the actual upgrading process.
