Slackware 14.1 kernel
 
Hi

I have 14.1 rc1 installed with the kernel changing from 3.10.16 to 3.10.17 do I have to follow the full upgrade procedure as defined here? http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:sla...:systemupgrade

Have you read ”UPGRADE.TXT” and ”CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT?”

No just the docs listed above. Will read them then, thanks.

You're welcome. I think that Pat does a good job explaining what to do in those two files.

Navigate to /etc/slackpkg/mirrors

Uncomment one slackware-current mirror (remove the # in front of the mirror). Run the following commands:

# slackpkg update gpg

# slackpkg update

# slackpkg install-new

# slackpkg upgrade-all

When prompted to run lilo hit enter for Yes.

As it is a very new install slackpkg clean-system won't find a lot of things needing removal.
