Can Red Hat Package Upgrades be done from Install CD?
My computer is currently not working because I have corrupted some of the core OS files (ooops, hehe). I have tried a few ways to get these files back into the system, but with no sucess. I know that these files are on my Red Hat cd, but when I run the installer, it does not mention upgrading the system, only installing it fresh. If I was to do an install, without formatting the harddrive, and only selecting the minimal amount of packages required for the core OS, would I still keep my old files and programs? I would like to save my home directory, and preferrably not have to reinstall all of my programs that I have added over the past year. How can I do this?
Thank you for any help you may offer,
