I find that an extraordinary comment. Surely it is much easier to "worry about" old config files than it is re-create them all from scratch.



On the system that was freshly installed, the sound worked and was setup to a decent level, k3b would burn dvd's with simple selection. Also, I didn't have to change any config file. If I want to add multimedia packages from a repostory somewhere, this should be a minor task.

With an upgrade, I have to raise the volume levers every time that I want sound to work. I really haven't tried many other features on the upgraded systems. Multimedia from repositories does seem to need corrected with the upgraded installation.

If I had to carry over config fles for things like pcmcia or had mail servers, http and ftp services configured, it would be a real pain.

Sorry for the comment, I guess most people had to do serious work on setting up things in the configuration files with much grief.

later,

Jim
