mandrake 9.0 -> 9.1


anyone had any bad experiences trying to go from a stable 9.0 installation to a 9.1 upgrade ?

i have 9.0 professional with a screwed up menu system for some reason, i also just downgraded my other linux box from 9.2 back to 9.1 with marvelous results....

pressing my luck, my dell laptop seems to love 9.0, i'm just hoping 9.1 will go smoothly, anything i should be ware of.... ?

it's kinda of a question, "why fix something that isn't broken if you know what i mean?"

thanks a bunch

upgrade? Don't do it. If 9.0 is running smoothly, why upgrade? You can do a clean install but upgrade never really worked well even though you do get that option during install.

i take you had a bad experience? i was just about to upgrade this morning and i got your message.

but your right, i'd hate to upgrade a good stable installation (albeit the menu screwed up) only to find myself in limbo

thanks a bunch, i'll have to think about this more carefully
