I think a lot of stuff was written when 5.3 was announced, that was when 5.x branch was declared "stable" IIRC. > I would like to actually do this without a make world scenario, and have > read some info bout booting off a usb device with 6.0 on it and copying > stuff over. > Anyone know of or heard bout this by any chance? If you have an extra machine or can afford the downtime, then you might save yourself a lot of work by simply doing a clean install this time. IIRC this was the "recomended method" for upgrading 4.x to 5.x. Part the reason I guess is that there has been a lot of reorganizing so building and installing from src may leave a lot of junk around. Recently make targets, "delete-old" and "delete-old-libs", have been added but I'm not sure if that would clean up after 4.x. > Also what recommendations would you make if you were to upgrade from 4.x > tree to 5 or 6? I think the major jump is going from 4.x to 5.x, I have since 5.x made incremental upgrades to 6.x without any problems. So, you might as well go straight to 6.x and skip 5.x entirely.
