during the update, anything in /home/olpc should of been left alone. However, any programs installed by ‘root’ in system folders will be ‘removed’ (essentially a ‘clean’ environment is created for the update). The suggestion method in the new environment, is re-installing all of those applications with the latest versions, to assure best compatibility with the newer OS.

 

Other than that, there are two options for you.

 

 

 

 

But look into ways of minimizing upgrade path -- doc all installs (last night was... libxslt ??? something...)

 

Firefox
Emacs (good time to work on building from CVS w/ fonts, etc.)
w3m - required the Boehm garbage collector when I built from CVS, but yum installation works fine
what others?
gcc ?
Perl
hoo-boy....
xpdf
