upgrade guide???

Postby yazeed on Sun Oct 28, 2007 1:26 am

Could someone post a no brainer upgrade guide that walks a user through upgrading from various mints to new mints (i.e cassandra to 4.0) without losing their personal data or programs?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

At this point there is no official guide to upgrade to 4.0 since there hasn't been a stable release yet.

To see upgrade guides between other versions check out the wiki.

For an upgrade guide to the newest stable release celena check out this thread.

this may sound a little scathing and unfriendly, but if you have your /home folder on a separate partition, It might work out better to just do a clean install...that way there is less to go wrong, IMO.

Trouble is one then has to re-install all the programmes that one was using previously. Takes too long.

Looking forward to a safe Upgrade route.

By he way the Daryna live installations look good.

To reinstall your programs after a new installation you can use AptOnCD. It is basically to restore your computer, it is in the repositories. :wink:
