Default Upgrading from Don't Panic Fresh Install

>I find it extremely impolite to give such a statement before you even TRIED to use the official image, which is linked on the official download page.


Sorry for making that statement, I was under the impression that I had tried at least one or two official cd's but they were all apparently archboot cd's and the only one I had that wasn't was the don't panic. I happened to come across more on the minimum system requirements on the wiki and tried it out in qemu and that worked. And that was when I checked the list and replied.

Again I am sorry, and I should have done some more looking around (and cd burning/labeling) before sending an email to the list looking for ideas on how to upgrade the old version.

Archboot needs 320 MB RAM to run.
Imho most systems ourdays have this amount of memory.

In short: It's not worth trying.

Agreed. I consider this impossible without a lot of time and intimite
knowledge of the various problems that will occur. Actually, the only
way I can imagine is booting a recent image and upgrading from there.

Just being curious here, but wouldn't that scenario be exactly the same
as installing Arch from another distro?

Ok, it does take some effort (like downloading the correct static pacman
and using the correct parameters), but other than that....

That being said; it's been a long time since i last installed ArchLinux,
so i may be way off.

Rolling release rocks!
