SOLVED FAQ available for upgrading from Linux Mint 12 to 13?

Post by jhovan »

Hello,

I've never been through the process of upgrading a Linux to newer linux operating system. Lisa to Cinnamon. I'm certain there are some good articles on how to do this.

Can someone point out an article that will give me the easiest way to accomplish the upgrade. I would like to keep my config/info intact as possible, but upgrade to Cinnamon. Is a complete reformat of the drive neccessary?

Ideas, suggestions or location of more info?

thanks,
John

It'd be a good idea to start by reading How to upgrade to a newer release in the Linux Mint Community pages.
