We use 2.1.x in the main but I always like trying the not quite latest
and current is a bit too time consuming to follow (fascinating mail-list
I started with the 2.2 SNAP last October, tried ALPHA and now BETA.
Apart from a fresh install is there a way to get a clean 'upgrade'
between the releases. The upgrade option in sysinstall doesn't
upgrade the /stand components so the package add is still hunting
for the now non-existent SNAP release tree. (As a side effect the BETA
release got as far as bootcrunch and then died but I was able to recover
the /etc files and copy the kernel over.) All seemed fine but how
do I tidy up the /stand/sysinstall components or databases?
I will probably do a fresh install when RELEASE is out but was just
curious about the best approach for upgrades, I am obviously missing something
but didn't get any paydirt from the release notes, etc. The upgrade option
is obviously aimed at earlier releases but mostly works well enough.
