Major Troubles - Upgrades Aren't All They Should Be

Tried to upgrade my  Fedora 6 based system to 7... and I was met with the infamous UDEV hanging error.

Long story short, I basically spent the last 7 hours trying to recover my FC6 system or fix the FC7 system and it didn't go over so well - ended up installing CentOS 5 - and then mounting my raid1 datavolume which contains all my 'data' (not settings, but data).

Needless to say - I think I have a fresh, new x86_64 based system fully patched with RHEL 5 libraries and ready to rock and roll.

Talk with you all tomorrow or later - I am beat!
