It hasn’t been long since I’m on version 11 (because it took long to fix some major issues I had with) and now that version 11.1 is out, I really don’t want to do a full install.
Good thing I noticed there is an ‘upgrade’ option on the install DVD. I’m not sure what will happen though, so I had a few questions. If you know the answer to any number of these, please reply:
1 - What’s being upgraded?
2 - Will all the packages I have installed be upgraded?
3 - Is it a side-by-side install, keep the old and get the new?
4 - What about the ones I did NOT install originally?
5 - What about the ones I removed after installing version 11?
6 - What happens if I upgraded a package to something newer than on the 11.1 version (say a new version of Firefox, etc)?
7 - What happens to the latest security updates I installed?
8 - What happens to the customization I did? (Change of modules being blacklisted, custom drivers, changes in gconf, custom fstab, etc)
9 - What happens to preferences changed? (New menu items, toolbars, keyboard shortcuts, keyboard map, color schemes, etc.)
10 - Anything else I should know about upgrading?
Thanks in advance,
