Updating from Slackware64-current to Slackware64 13.


As you may know (due to my posts), I've installed Slackware64-Current a week ago. Now, Slackware64 13 is released (Great!!!!).

Is there any easy way to update my system to the stable release or should I install Slackware64 13 from scratch?

Thank you!

They are identical as long as you update to August 26th on current you will have Slackware 13.0. No need to re-install.

1) point in your /etc/slackpkg/mirror from -current to slackware64 13
2) slackpkg update
3) slackpkg install-new
4) slackpkg updgrade-all
5) slackpkg clean-system

and your system is up-to-date. That's all.

Thank you!
I didn't remove the packages shown by slackpkg clean-system. If this wasn't correct, please, let me know.

If the packages were removed from Slackware then it's usually a good reason to remove those.

Do be careful with "clean-system" though. It will list any package that is not part of the official Slackware set.

This will include packages that you may have either built yourself (possibly via slackbuilds/sbopkg etc.) or downloaded and installed from someplace other than a Slackware mirror.

A good idea is to blacklist your own or custom packages.
