Upgrading 0.96->0.97

Upgrading 0.96->0.97

Post by David Be » Wed, 12 Aug 1992 16:32:01

        A small simple question. I am currently running 0.96c Linux
and would like to upgrade the kernel to 0.97. I boot from the hard disk
and would appreciate being able to upgrade using a bootimage without
having to recompile the kernel on the system.
        Does anyone have any ideas if this is possible?
        Many thanks for your help.

1. Upgrade SLS 0.96 to SLS 0.98

How do you upgrade the root (a2) disk from an existing (0.96) file
system to version 0.98?

I tried just running the normal "doinstall PART" but got a bunch of
error messages saying "file exists" apparently when the install program
was trying to create links. There were some other error messages about
the /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/2.2.2d/cpp program which doesn't exist
on my 0.96 system.

Is there a 'clean' way to do this? I will welcome any suggestions.
