Is there a way to upgrade a server remotely? In the past upgrades you had to mount a cd on the local server. I am remote from the server so was wondering how I could upgrade a test box remotely.

thanks

You can upgrade through slapt-get, or you can download the install iso with wget and mount the iso and upgrade.
The proper way is to restart in single user mode, but I manage an upgrade from multiuser mode.
You have to upgrade slackware/a first, and don't forget to
1. Rename crucial *.new files in /etc/rc.d/ mostly
2. Edit your /etc/passwd and add oprofile entry from /etc/passwd.new.
3. Add gid 16 (dialout), gid 51 (oprofile), and gid 86 (netdev) from etc/group.new to your /etc/group file.
4. Don't forget to run lilo after the upgrade of the kernel.

Cross your fingers and reboot.

I would recommend downloading the iso, and copy slackware/a to a dir, remove kernels you don't use and upgrade with 'upgradepkg --install-new'.
Then continue with the rest.
Also you can skip x-kde-addon too.
