All i did was booted from the dvd or cd and told it to do a fresh install, it reformated my linux partition and was good to go.

Not sure how that'll go, at least my old box was on mdk9.2, and updating into 10.0 was a disaster. I suggest just backing up your files, and at least formatting /boot if that's on its own partition. if not, format the drive... You'll get it alot faster that way...

Recent experience

I don't know what is up with mandrake guys, I really like their desktop but i've tried to upgfrade twice, one from 9.0 to 10.0 and now from 10 to 10.1, as it has been said before, a complete mess. I really suggest to backup and perform fresh install. i REALLY hope MDK people fix this upgrade issue.

I haven't had any problems choosing the "Upgrade" option in the installer...

I didn't suggest a fresh install.. just try to upgrade to all 10.1 rpms via urpmi, and to do that change the sources to the 10.1 mirrors. It's all in that link.

Good luck!

I have been upgrading whenever a new version comes out.
I have started since 9.0
I usually have a lot of little things go wrong. Sound etc.

If you don't have much to loose I recommend upgrade. If that doesn't work you can always do a complete reinstall. But, I would try upgrade first, who knows you might get lucky.
But you can't go the other way.

I usually don't have a lot of things I mind loosing. I like to do a full clean install. I do that with Microsoft too.

That's my 2 pennies worth
Charlie
