Re: How do I upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2?

Regarding this discussion...

I still do not understand the mechanics of upgrading my 1.1 distribution to 1.2
Assuming I get dpkg-ftp to work, when I fire up dselect, what do I need to do
to upgrade ALL of the various packages I have installed?  I am concerned
regarding all of the security updates - do I need to read all of them and then
upgrade each package individually?  I have not really found any documentation
to this point.

Thanks for any help provided
