Upgrading Fedora 24 to 25

Fedora 25 was released a few days ago.

I've upgraded one of my machines. The others are soon to follow. Fedora 25 switches from X11 to Wayland as a default. For my laptop I had to switch last release because my laptop's touchpad was nowhere to be found in X. For this release I am looking forward to not getting to play games on my main desktop. I am sure to blog about any problems I happen upon.

If you're running Fedora 24 you can easily upgrade to Fedora 25 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=25 --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.

And yeah, I broke my work setup that used proprietary NVidia drivers to get a second monitor running.
