What is the best way to upgrade Konppix on an installed system, without losing data?


I have installed knoppix on all my computers, but every time I tried to upgrade, it seems that I end up with an entire new installation, and have to loiad programs and data from scratch. Is there a way to evercome this?

Although Knoppix can be installed to a hard drive, it was designed to be used as a Live CD/DVD. The problems you are having are explained at the knoppix site, links below. Quote from the first link at the Knoppix site: cannot be upgraded (if you try it, you'll get chaos).

Thank you very much. It is a pitty that Knoppix is primarily a live distro, as it is one of the most complete distro's I have yet seen.
