how to upgrade nmap on backtrack


sorry guys for this stupid question,
i have old version for nmap:
root@bt:~# nmap --version
nmap version 5.35DC1 ( http://nmap.org )

i download new version, but before i install it, is there a way to upgrade the old one on my system?
or need to un-install the old version and install the new version?
i tried this:
root@bt:~# yum upgrade nmap
Setting up Upgrade Process
Could not find update match for nmap
No Packages marked for Update
root@bt:~#

can anyone advise please?
Regards

The version is Backtrack 4 r2.
In according to MR David ross comments, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...pgrade-489609/ , "You could see if there have been updated packages released"

But when i wrote yum upgrade nmap in the console, it gave me that could not find update match for nmap even though the version of nmap on my pc is 5.35DC1 and there is available 5.5 already on the net.

some softwares cant upgrade themselves like that
you can download the newest version of them and try to install

Appreciate your reply nypd365,

It is mean there is no way to use yum upgrade nmap in my situation cause it didnt gave anything.
So, what i must do is to un-install the old version of nmap, then install the new version, yes?

Best Regards

Sorry I respond late,
yes uninstalling is so easy on BT
you can do it by software manager
then try to install the new version
if its hard for you , search internet and try to install it
by installinh a few softwares you could be the master of linux
