Re: How do I upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2?

The way I did it was to start dpkg-ftp, and tell it to use the "frozen"
distribution. I set the ftp site, and told it to update the list of
available packages. I went through the selection screen looking for things
that had changed - since all of my currently-installed packages were
automaticaly selected, there was little to do. Then I told it to install,
and it did the job for me. If you are a modem user it could take days.
I would also suggest that you update the list of available packages every
day, as we are still making small changes.
