Topic: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

Hi there,

I am currently using the remi repository and its php packages and they work great.

As the new fedora release draws near, I wanted to ask what needs to be done when upgrading from fedora 34 to 35?

I read the FAQ but there is very little information and don#t understand what exactly needs to be done before and after the upgrade of fedora.
I used the wizard to configure the repository in a way that allows me to install multiple php versions. I currently have only php 8.0 installed.

I would appreciate any kind of help to allow a smooth upgrade to the new fedora version.

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

A list of installed php* may help, but if you only use "multiple php versions" update should work without any effort

Else post output of "dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=35"

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

This is not "multiple version", but single version from modular repo wink

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

Thats odd, I followed the instructions for the multiple version of the wizard and installed the php 8.0 packages.

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

Command for module (php-* packages):

    dnf module install php:remi-8.0

Is really different than the one for multiple versions (php80-php-* packages)

    dnf install php80

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

The wizard showed the following command: dnf --enablerepo=remi install php80

and that is the command I executed. If that is not how it should be, is there a way to "convert" to a multiple installation?

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

Don't know what you mean by "convert".

You can always install as many versions as you want, beside the default system one.

Which version do you want as default ?
Which alternative versions do you want ?

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

Currently I just need php 8.0 but this will change in the future with the release of php 8.1.

My biggest concern currently is that the php stuff will break when I upgrade to fedora 35.
You mentioned that there is an option to make more resilient in case of upgrading fedora.
What is the next thing I need to do to make my installtion o fthe remi repo more robust?

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

Again, try the upgrade

dnf should take care of needed work, if it doesn't this is probably some dnf issue (which may have workaround)

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

Okay, I will try :-).

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

From a quick check on a fresh F34 VM, everything seems to work as expected (modular way)


Example

# dnf config-manager --set-enabled remi
# dnf config-manager --set-enabled remi-modular

# dnf module install php:remi-8.1

# dnf install composer

# dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=35

Re: Instructions for Upgrading to Fedora 35

For me it could not upgrade. There where problems with the icu69 packages. I fully removed the repo before the upgrade and installed it after the successful update again and everything works fine now.
