F15: Upgrade from Fedora 14 to 15 on home-built Linux Desktop 2

I simply used preupgrade, as in §6.3.10. The only delay was when it asked me to delete unused kernels in /boot to make enough space for the new stuff--nice!

Most of my issues had to do with getting everything (particular music/audio stuff) going on a 64-bit Linux system for the first time. In particular, lots of paths needed to be changed from /usr/lib to /usr/lib64/ here and there. In my opinion, wordlengths should not be encoded into directory names. Let each .o file identify its architecture (as I believe they already do), and let loaders print error messages if they can't find the architecture they need.
