Is there any way to install gnome 3.2 in fedora 15 itself. I customized my fedora 15 too much.I cant do it again by installing fedora 16. It would take a huge amount of time. Kindly some one specify how to use gnome 3.2 in fedora 15 itseft rather than going for upgrade or complete new installation of f16...

Thanks in this regard...

Upgrading to f16 won't make you lose your customizations, just remember to use the DVD; and there is no clean way to install gnome 3.2 on f15.

the trick is to keep a separate home partition. This way, you can easily reinstall a new fedora release without losing your data or your settings/customizations. I've been doing this since Fedora 9 ;)

You can install Fedora 16 in an other partition and copy the configs of your old home directory into the new one. I do this every release and I haven't had problems with it...
