True, it required some coaxing to start the whole process and a careful cleanup afterwards (both 'yum-utils' and 'rpm' are helpful in that) but other than that, which means an extra work, this was not a problem. If you did not dump everything into one big partition in the first place then installing over system parts, while keeping local data, and restoring a desired configuration afterwards could be simpler and quicker. Selectively restoring from backups also can be an option. Make no mistake - a machine in use for a while is likely "more customized" then it looks at the first glance so getting to an equivalent configuration on a new installation is usually quite a bit more work than you think. Still with a bit of planning you may end up ahead. > Till now, there is no decision about our current > OS-strategies. Thinking in terms what can be, apparently, "upgraded" to what is possibly not that great idea.
