should I upgrade to 11.0 or install it fresh
I was trying out Ubuntu for some time now, but I am back to Slackware. I always do come back to good old Slackware, sooner or later, no matter what distro I try as an alternative. Nothing even matches the stability and speed of Slackware. And, no, I haven't tried Gentoo.
I want a small advice from you. I have got my self Slackware 11.0 CDs. I have Slackware 10.1 installed on my system. I have customized it minorly to suit my needs. My question is what is the best way to install Slackware 11.0 on my system. Should I go for a fresh install of should I upgrade? If I want to upgrade, then what is the best procedure for doing so?
Some of my software like firefox, f-spot, opera, etc are installed on /usr/local/ directory and some s/w like kde3.5.4 and openoffice.org are installed on /opt.
If I make a fresh install then probably I would have to format /usr which is mounted on a separate partition, there by having to install these all over again.
So I am eagerly awaiting your suggestions.
Thanking in advance,
