Ok, here is the picture. Trying to upgrade to FC-5 for the sake of some improved drivers. At first got the stupid "insufficient disk space message on an 8.5gb drive. So I ran EZ Gig II and copied the contents to a 15.4gb drive. Of course, it would not boot as the boot loader was then incorrect .. I suspected that would happen. BUT, I attempted the upgrade anyway. The upgrade corrected the bootloader in the process, but again, 1/2 way into the upgrade, I got the same damn message. This is NUTS as NO Linux build should need that big of a drive.
I then tried a cold full install on that 15.4. It installed without a hitch, except my sound dissapeared, it loaded the wrong drivers for my video and in general was a stone MESS when it came to the hardware. (so it really did NOT install without a hitch .. LOL)
I am back to the Core 4 as it WORKS with the programs I have installed.
Is there ANY way around this without UN-INSTALLING items that I USE in Core 4? Or am I going to have to wait for a Core 6 or more to have the problem corrected? I REALLY want some of the features and programs I have in 4 to MIGRATE and do not want to deal with re-installing them.
BTW, did NOT have this problem when I migrated from Core 3 to core 4 and all programs migrated also.
