hi Steve and John,

Wow you two are quick !! Did you wiped out Blag30002 and install fresh Blag30003 ?

Have you "ported" your existing desktop and program settings from previous verison to the new version ? My guess would be just copying-over the saved home directory from the previous version into the new version ? is this safe to do ?

Me.. i think I'll wait till the 50K stable release comes out, before I got nuts reconfiguring all my settings again and again. But its not that much anyways.. heres what I do and will always do upon fresh installs..

1) change wallpaper to "grass" and theme to "smokey blue"
2) change streamtuner default 'save' directory to 'home\Blag-music' directory
3) change audacity 'temp' directory to 'home\audacity-tmp' directory
4) change gimp 'temp' directory to 'home\gimp-tmp' directory
5) add to the menu bar the following : stock ticker, weather, etc
6) etc.

but what are some of the differences between 30002 and 30003 ?

Thanks :)

Most likely not. You can just do an upgrade with CD or with apt-get/yum.

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install kernel#2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3


That will bring you up-to-date with 30003. You don't have to redo all your configs and such nor do a fresh install.

In fact, with every version of blag so far you haven't had to do a fresh install from stable to stable releases.
