In this article I will show you how to Update / Upgrade your Slackware 13.37 to Slackware 14.0 via command line interface.

Follow these steps for a propper update/upgrade.

Step 1. Add the 14.0 repositories:

# echo '' > /etc/slackpkg/mirrors

Step 2. Syncronise your system with the new repo:

# slackpkg check-updates
# slackpkg upgrade-all

Next, you will be asked to (K)eep old files, (O)verwrite all files with the new ones, (R)emove all new files or (P) prompt K, O, R to every single file.

I highly recommand you to press K, to (K)eep your old files.

Now, all you have to do next is to make the upgrade, with this command:

# slackpkg install-new

This is it. Reboot and Enjoy.
