Installation - 5 Upgrading From Fink 0.1.x
There is no direct upgrade path from Fink 0.1.x to Fink 0.2.x, because they use different methods for underlying package management (stow vs. dpkg). The only way to upgrade is to do a complete reinstall. The procedure is as follows:
Save any changes you have made to configuration files etc.
Save a list of packages you had installed. Hint: Try
If you have the source tarballs still lying around in /sw/src and don't want to download them again, move them to another directory.
Wipe out the /sw directory, i.e.
cd / ; rm -rf /sw. Do this as root if necessary.
Follow the procedures for a first time installation above.
When you're asked for an 'additional directory for downloaded tarballs', enter the directory you moved the tarballs to.
Reinstall the packages you need.
