Re: [K12OSN] Release notes for K12LTSP 4.2.0 (rc1)



Hi!

I am in the mood to have some fun again. How do one go about to upgrade
over the net with yum or apt? I suppose i need the address to the
repository and do a dist-upgrade. I have release 4.0.1, fully upgraded. I
can afford a hoosed server since its x-mas holiday here in Sweden. Thougth
i could be a guinea pig for once ;D

/cheers!
