Dear Google. I do not want Google+, please stop trying to trick/force me into it. It's bad enough that you don't play nicely with Facebook.

is checking if Twitter updates on Facebook will also end up on my website. Still can't believe I've succumbed to Twitter.
Upgrading Fedora 14 Without PreUpgrade
Tuesday 24th January, 2012 13:39
Although upgrading Fedora 14 to 15 isn't officially supported using yum (you should use PreUpgrade), I gave it a try this month on a Hyper-V R2 based virtual machine (after taking a snapshot) and stumbled across a few issues (none relating to Hyper-V) that I thought might be worth sharing.

After running the following commands (over SSH) as suggested on the Fedora site:
rpm --import https://fedoraproject.org/static/069C8460.txt
yum update yum
yum clean all
yum --releasever=15 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync
I got the error message:
Error: Package: libpanelappletmm-2.26.0-2.fc12.i686
A quick yum remove later and that was sorted:
yum remove libpanelappletmm -y
Everything looked good after a massive 1.2GB download, but I thought I'd do a "reboot" for good measure:
Failed to talk to init daemon.
Thankfully I found a way to fix this:
sync && reboot -f
After the reboot, everything came back up fine, although Gnome was running in fallback mode (not a bad thing, to be honest). Even VNC seemed happy, which I wasn't expecting.
