Fedora 11 is out, upgrade time

So Fedora 11 has been out for a little while now and I'm getting ready to upgrade. Previously I have tried using the upgrade facility however I normally end up having to perform a clean install. So now I'm currently backing up my home directories to my external storage ready to wipe everything and start again. Ill update how this goes.

Update: Install was painless simple selecting of packages that wanted to install. However my internet connection was playing up which meant that it hung whilst trying to download packages from the net. Currently installing the nvidia packages from rpmfusion.

Update Everything is up and running and I have restored all my data back on. A few problems and annoyances. There is a problem with the non-free nvidia driver. The only other annoyance is the System -> Preferences menu is not split into further sub menus which creates a menu that doesn't fit on my screen. I have yet to have a proper play with everything else but so far it all looks good.
