I've used PreUpgrade to update a couple of machines from F10 to F11,
including one of my MythTV front-ends and haven't run into any major
issues yet. This includes the myth packages from ATrpms; they just
got upgraded along with everything else.
As far as the NVidia binaries it may depend on how/where you installed
them from. After using the ATrpms NVidia packages for a while on most
of my machines I have resorted to installing them manually using the
binaries downloaded directly from NVidia. After the F10 --> F11
upgrade I had to re-install the drivers, but this is straightforward
and no different from what happens when there is a kernel update. I
did run into one issue because Fedora now installs the noveua driver
by default and it was interfering with the NVidia stuff, but I got
around this by blacklisting the driver. Not sure what would happen if
you have NVidia packages from ATrpms or RPMfusion; it may take care of
this stuff automatically.
Haven't upgraded my F10 myth back-end machine yet, but probably will
give it a try over the weekend.
Not sure about going from F9 --> F11 using PreUpgrade. Is this even
