Code:
apt-get upgrade && apt-get install kernel


will give you a list of what you have installed and what is available in the repo. if you running on a conventional sytem you'll end up doing something like:

Code:
apt-get install kernel#2.6.17-1.2174_FC5


this will require a restart.

I've the luxury of having an empty 40GB partition that is currently dedicated to installing an as-of-yet unidentified Linux distro (although dyne:bolic and OpenSuSE are front runners). I've read within this forum, however, that fresh installs of BLAG upgrades tend to be "cleaner" than upgrading the existing version in place. Is this true for even the "minor" upgrade from BLAG 50000 to 50001?

In a perfect world, I assume the code to perform the upgrade might be as simple as:

Code:
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade && install

Thoughts? Thanks!

Ya, to reiterate what r7 said, "not really". ;)

You just need to update your base system thusly:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade


Grab the latest kernel (and reboot):

Code:
apt-get install kernel#2.6.17-1.2174_FC5


Then you could also add the few bits added to 50001 that weren't in 50000:

Code:
apt-get install gnomebaker graveman \ gstreamer08-plugins-extra-audio \ gstreamer08-plugins-extra-dvd \ gstreamer08-plugins-extra-video \
streamripper vcdimager


That'll get you to the same setup as a 50001 fresh install.

FWIW, I personally don't (typically) do fresh installs. I have some systems I've upgraded since RH8 era...
