how to upgrade the linux to a new version?

Post by pengxiang zho » Wed, 21 Feb 2001 12:15:02



Hi,

  I am using SuSE Linux 6.4, and I want to update it to version  7.1 by
downloading the file from ftp.suse.com. But I am not sure how I can install
the new version based on my old version without deleting my old stuff, could
anyone give some directions?

Thank you very much!

1. New linux/UNIX programs collection - new version of RXVT and more

For all of you out there who are striving to make linux look good, be a joy
to use, do some useful things, impress the windoze boyz with or just to
tinker with, take a look in the Linux section of:

http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~s2154962/

There's a new version of RXVT I modified myself, ppm to ansi conevrters, a
brand spanking new hack on fvwm2.. infact to the point of it not being fvwm2
anymore, Xripple.. a realtime ripple & reflection program for the root
window, and more... more will appear as time goes on.

Thanx for reading & looking. I hope it will be useful to you.
