pkg-upgrade


This command takes no arguments. If any installed packages need to be upgraded you will be presented with a list and promted if you wish to continue.

It is safe to upgrade the kernel with headers etc...just remember to run 'doinitrd' to build an initrd.gz image.

Examples of use

--> pkg-upgrade
