  • It clears caches from memory. It works fine on CentOS and Fedora. It will show you how much memory you need, for real.

  • Have netcat listen on port 8000, point browser to http://localhost:8000/ and you see the information sent. netcat terminates as soon as your browser disconnects. I tested this command on my Fedora box but linuxrawkstar pointed out that he needs to use nc -l -p 8000 instead. This depends on the netcat version you use. The additional '-p' is required by GNU netcat that for example is used by Debian but not by the OpenBSD netcat port used by my Fedora system. Show Sample Output

    nc -l 8000

What Others Think

If you have sufficient free space in your /boot (to store a sort of mini livecd), you can use preupgrade also. There is a CLI. yum install preupgrade preupgrade-cli

I'd have to recommend against this, because it can be unsafe and is not normally a supported upgrade path. Also, you would need to manually make sure that you merge the rpmnew files as there might have been major configuration changes. Things can change in incompatible ways between releases. Normally the preupgrade tool is designed to move from release to release and resolve these problems. You can also use the upgrade profile of anaconda. I wouldn't recommend using yum directly in most cases.
