Distribution upgrade after cancelling it


I have Mandriva 2009.1 running on my machine right now. Back when 2010 came out I didn't feel like letting it upgrade, so when it offered, I cancelled it. Is there a simple way to go ahead and let it do that upgrade now?

As root:

Code:
mdkapplet-upgrade-helper --new_distro_version=2010.0
will launch the upgrade process.

An alternative is to edit ~/.MdkOnline/mdkonline and change the last word in the line:

Code:
DO_NOT_ASK_FOR_DISTRO_UPGRADE=true
to false, or just comment out the line. This should result in the invitation to upgrade re-appearing the next time mdkonline (the "updates" applet) runs.
