Then can i pick your brain a little more then Albert
I've held off upgrading cos' of the glitches/freezes etc with 13, hoping by the time came when support was discontinued for 12, it'd all have been taken care off.
So i have two questions:
I've never attempted to upgrade by the dist-upgrade method using terminal so I'd like to try it at some point, I know it's slower than using an iso image and doing a clean install but I can live with that for the sake of trying it. I've read about doing a clean install and copying over the home directory to preserve all your date, tweaks, settings etc which sounds simple in theory, but am I understanding it right? Do you literally copy the home directory to an exernal source then copy it back over after install to overwrite the existing home folder?
Is it really that simple and is that a MUCH better method than installing the dist-upgrade packages over the net??
. . . . . Edit: is 14 a long term support version??
