Upgrade GNU/Linux Fedora from 7 to 8 (with yum)

Upgrade from Fedora 7 to Fedora 8 can be done with the same method I have explained into another post.
In addition, there is recommendations of Fedora project.
Eventually, this is additional instructions allowing to find potential issues with installed packages (need yum-utils package):
package-cleanup --problems
to find problems
package-cleanup --orphans
to list installed packages which are not available from currently configured repositories. It allows to find orphan installed packages which may be removed now.

Personally, I have had hang problems after upgrade (independent from it).
My next post will be linked to it, and known solutions.
