Well I got this one out in record time :). Upgrading slackware from one version to another has a reputation for being intimidating, but it isn’t. It’s not as easy as “apt-get dist-upgrade” but the instructions are relatively simple and straight forward. In this episode I upgrade a 12.1 slackware installation to 12.2 using Pat Volkerding’s “preferred” method. I hope you enjoy it.
The section where I reconfigure the configuration files in /etc was originally long and boring so I truncated it after a few examples and went right to the end.
