I downloaded Slack 10.1 and saw from the main cd 1 boot screen that I could upgrade my installed Slack 10 by mounting my Slack partition, chmod, pkgtool-remove packages...I think. Then choose upgrade?
Now, if I have to remove all installed packages to upgrade-that's a pain since pkgtool doesn't show packages I had to build from source. I'm thinking that I upgraded my kernel to 2.4.29 and now I'd like to upgrade my IP tables from the 10.1 cd.
So, could I removed my IP tables package if I boot off the Slack 10.1 cd and then install the new IP tables from that cd?
