Swaret, updating to Slackware Current and to KDE 3.2.2...


I have been wondering about swaret... I downloaded Slackware 9.1 a while back (which we all know is old, I believe it came out in September). I also downloaded Slackware Current (dated 5/21/04) on, well, the 21st. I have been wondering, if I just install Slackware 9.1 and then tell swaret to retrieve and update to Slackware current then will it update KDE from 3.1.4 to 3.2.2 as well? Any help with this would also be appreciated.

Thanks,
Erik

Yes it will. I have heard of people having problems 'swaret'ing to current, but I had no problems doing so myself.
