With a large update to be made, eg. the 900 package one I questioned yesterday, are there any suggestions to avoid possible complications?
Two examples, I’d like to know of others too:
I’m not running the most recently installed kernel, I assume I should reboot to that.
I normally have a graphical environment running. Would it be better to: a) shutdown X and update from a straight CLI environment b) logout from the GUI and update from a vt CLI c) update from a GUI login as root or d) doesn’t matter, do as normal — from an SSH login, “sudo yum update”?
