Update 14.5 via Pacman?

Postby Keruba » 15 Jan 2015, 12:26

Hi there.

Is there a way to update alphaos 14.5 without having to install the new 16.1?

I tried the way of copying the new Distro files into boot folder, but it seems the new Release won`t boot properly, takes ages to load up and half of the programs won`t work. Also, i`m still on Grub4dos, maybe that is a problem too.

The 14.5 alphaos is working like a charm the problem is flash and firefox etc.. is getting old and i didn`t found out the proper way to update this and integrate the changes within the system.

Any ideas?

How is your system setup? frugal install?
What exactly did you do?

by new distro files you mean alpha_16.sb and extra_16.sb?

Perhaps you didn't copy the new boot/ directory from the 16.1 iso to your 14.5 install directory?

Are you using old savefile? if so is it working if you boot without savefile
