LM 6 via Update?

Postby EchoLynx on Wed Nov 26, 2008 10:46 pm

Is it possible to upgrade to Felicia RC1 in Elyssa without a clean reinstall? I just really don't feel like reinstalling all my applications...

Also, is it possible to point folders in the home directory to a different partition, as if you were redirecting the "My Documents" folder in XP to a separate drive?

Thanks,
Ian

RC 6 is the test release and not the final release.
Updating to it would be pointless.
After the final release of Felicia their will be a way of updating to it.

I understand that it would be redundant, but it wouldn't be pointless- I want to help by testing. Anyway, after the final is released can't you update your release candidate?

Id like to jump in here too, not meaning to hijack this thread.

Can I cleanly / easily update from Mint 6 rc1 to Mint 6 full release? I got a nice new to me PC, and id like to set it up with all my settings, games, links and stuff with Mint 6. Or is it easier / better / cleaner to wait for the full release?

Personally, I've decided to just stick with clean installs. Makes things simpler, and less chance of headaches later down the road.
