Upgrade Instructions 4.2 ==> 12.12.1

Posted on Posted in Dryland - Third Edition

These instructions upgrade Netrunner Dryland-SE (4.2) to Netrunner Dryland-TE (12.12.1).

Please use at your own risk and make sure to make a backup of your personal data first before attempting the upgrade.

To perform the upgrade, open a terminal (yakuake or konsole) and type the following commands:

wget http://community.netrunner-os.com/upgrade-4.2.sh 
chmod a+rx upgrade-4.2.sh 
sudo ./upgrade-4.2.sh

During the upgrade, you’ll see a lot of information appear in the terminal and you might see a few warnings/errors. As long as they don’t halt the upgrade, you can ignore them.

The upgrade may take a while (up to 1:30 hours, depending on your machine and you Internet connection), so be prepared for that.

If you have any questions or if you are getting stuck, please use the following forum thread to seek some help:
