Upgrade from 13.37 to 14 questions
I wan't to upgrade an existing slackware 13.37 vbox installation to 14.0 to do the upgrade must you download the dvd iso? or can you do it like debian & do it through package-manager?

you can use slackpkg to help you on this one
point your repository to Slackware 14.0 and ran

slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
slackpkg clean-system

this should give you a proper Slackware 14.0 system

Thank you also Bob I skimmed thru it & I think I'll spend a little more time reading the link. Like I said this 1 is just a VM so I'm just doing it for the learning experience. I also read how to do it from cd. but wanted to pull in the packages.
