Considering I'm running DSL 4.3 frugal and that I'm a noobie in Linux and DSL, please advise which are the needed steps to upgrade to newer version DSL 4.4.1, also in frugal mode.
"Getting Started with DSL" says it's easy to upgrade from version to version but so far I haven't found the details on how to do it.
Is it likely I just need to copie the newer KNOPPIX file to its appropriate directory, replacing the olders KNOPPIX file?
In this case, do I necessarily need to burn a CD with the newer version? Or is there a way I can extract the KNOPPIX file w/o burning the CD?
"Note that I believe I'm running DSL with restore/persistency and that it seems to be working fine - see below the 3-lines extract from my menu.lst file:
title DSL with mydsl, restore, persistency, hostname, and passwords
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda2 quiet vga=normal noacpi noapm noscsi frugal dma restore=hda5 home=hda6 opt=hda5 host=ALBANI dsl mydsl=hda5
I'll appreciate very much any help or comments on how to do it.
