Question: How to upgrade SalixOS  from 13 to 13.1  version?

Answer  :

First as root, open /etc/slackpkg/mirrors. Uncomment one mirror if you haven’t already. Change the directory it is supposed to look in from slackware-13.0 to slackware-13.1.

Save it.

Now open terminal and type the following commands:

slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade all

If you have some extra packages installed, there are instructions on the man slackpkg page. You should use that anyhow. Slackpkg clean
will remove extra packages.

Upgrade from  Salix 13 to 13.1

edit  /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc

For i486 architecture
