get systemd journal entries on web interface.

Just in case you need it, you can get the journalctl entries from systemd in the web page.

First install :

yum install systemd-journal-gateway

Once you have done this you can get the journal entries with wget as well with

wget http://localhost:19531/entries

or if you prefer, you can browse with a browser at http://localhost:19531/. It has a nice little interface for browsing the entries, nothing too fancy but just sufficient.

Upgrade to Fedora 13 from your existing version using yum.

Well. this time it seems to be very simple :

yum –releasever=13 upgrade

update 22/April/2010:
The key file will not be there so there are two options for you in this case:
1) Install the following rpms from the downloaded rpms with \”yum –nogpg localinstall\”
a) fedora-release
b) fedora-release-notes
2) Run the whole upgrade with –nogpg option.

Issue observed after the upgrade:
The new kernel was not added in the grub menu and I had to manually add the below entry in the menu.lst file:

title Fedora (
root (hd0,11)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=f832d6ce-dad3-4af9-9ef1-aac950f8284c rhgb quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 KEYTABLE=us init=/sbin/bootchartd

Because of this I was not able to start the X server until I restarted the system with the entry in place and selecting this in the GRUB menu.
