Ok I've got a system running 6.0-release, it is an internal server and has
nothing important on it.
I'm running into problems where a lot of the packages are old and out of
date, and everyday it seems I'm having to update 5-6 of em for something or
I'm considering just wiping the system clean and starting from scratch to
say either 6.4-release or 7.0 release.
It is a sun netra x1 with a ultrasparc IIe 400mhz and 512mb ram. The
machine is here at my location, so accessibility is no problem at all
I know it is primarily my choice but feedback on whether a total wipe and
reinstall with something a bit more current would be a better choice than
fixing what I have.
All feedback welcome.
