Upgrade from 6.06 to 6.1 query
Not realising that 6.1 was due out yesterday, I installed 6.06 on my day to day use laptop and everything I tried worked perfectly - maximum screen resolution, wireless, shared networking, printing to Windows printer etc.
As I haven't done anything else to the laptop apart from adding the network name and adding a printer, would I be be better served if I were to reinstall from a 6.1 cd from scratch or should I just use the gksu "Update-manager -c" command to do the update?
My thoughts are that as its a fresh install anyway, I might as well do another new install from scratch so thats there's no hangovers/old/redundant files from the previous version.
I'm downloading the cd anyway so I can install on another machine. No doubt that by the time an automated update has finished downloading the necessary files and done the upgrade, just doing a clean install would be just as quick.
I've probably talked myself into doing a clean install just writing this anyway, but if anybody has a recommendation as to why one method would be preferable to the other, I'd appreciate reading it.
