Thread: Updating Mandrake...

  1. #1

    Default Updating Mandrake...

    I have Mandrake 9.0 I play around with once in a while. CUrrently downloading 10.0. DO I have to eliminate the old 9.0 or will 10.0 install itself over the old 9.0?

    You can simply do an upgrade install. Just boot off the CD, you'll see the option to upgrade soon enough.

    However, doing a clean install is always recommended, not matter what OS you use.

    I tried booting off the CD. THe lilo screen popped up and wouldnt let me boot off the CD, floppy it would, but cd nope. I found out there was some problem with the partition and 9.0 refused to load anyways, so I just reformatted the whole linux partition back to windows. GOnna get a 30 or 40gb HD and a ATA controller card and put linux on that. Then when I do get time to build a new box, it will be linux only. Keep my main PC for XP.

    Yes. It was set to boot off the CD. Still is right now. I'll just wait until I get a new one built to use linux on. My main PC is used to process my digital camera pictures and need the graphics programs.
