Having done this several times before, I highly recommend downgrading via binary package.
Back up your system first! Get your 4.4 CD, throw it in the drive, and see what happens. As a rule this is not guaranteed to work, but if it doesn't then a downgrade from source certainly won't. I believe (knock on wood) that the filesystems between 4.4 and -current are in sync, so you'll probably be OK. You will, of course, have to reinstall every single program on the system. Enjoy. :) On Fri, Nov 02, 2001 at 12:36:18PM +0000, John wrote: > Hello List > > Is there a guide or a how-to showing how to downgrade from a > 5.0-CURRENT snapshot to 4.4-STABLE without having to blat the system and > start again?
