It depends on what distro you're using. If it's got a Package Manager, update and upgrade with that.

"Tased" or tasked? If it's the former, you have a harsh master!

As brianL says, the distro (distribution, e.g. Redhat, SuSE, Ubuntu, Slackware, debian - think of it like the brand of Linux that you are using) makes a difference to the procedure.

If you're lucky, it will just be a matter of telling the OS to install a newer version of the software, which can be a one line command in the terminal, or a simple operation with a GUI package manager tool.

In you're unlucky your distribution doesn't carry the version you want in it's software repositories, and the procedure will be a lot more involved.
