Reinstall.


This is the correct answer. We do not support in OS upgrading between major versions of Bodhi currently.

Congratulations on the new 3.0 version, Jeff - the live boot is great!  But I'm glad I didn't spend a bunch of time beating my head against my inability to make the upgrade work.  Guess I'll note everything I'll want to be re-installing after the upgrade and downloading it over the fast line at work.

 

Thanks so much to you and the team for all of the effort you've put into this!

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I want to know whether this is still the case for the next major upgrade of Bodhi Linux.

 

I am used to Debian, but expect that it is the same with Ubuntu. In Debian you can upgrade an existing system by just updating the /etc/apt/sources.list file and doing

apt-get dist-upgrade

What is the reason this is not possible with Bodhi?

so the best way is to 

 

apt-get dist-upgrade

 

for minor releases and format and install for major releases ?

 

Have a simple question on install major releases:

 

I have /home on a different partition than /, can I format just root, install new major release and reboot with old /home ?

 

 

Doing a 

 

dpkg --get-selections > packages_list_old
 
dpkg --set-selections < packages_list_old
 
apt-get dselect-upgrade
 
 
will restore the new system to the same state than old ?

I believe the ~/.e folder should be mv to ~/.e.old or similar to make sure the enlightenment moksha configuration is properly set up. You will need to reconfigure your desktop. With the other commands you are "just" over my head with respect to what it does. I would imagine the only problem you could run in to would be PPAs, if you use them, and packages that literally have no new versions built for the newer kernel/system.
