Download SMS.Native.CD-1.3.13-install.iso.
edit your /etc/inittab
telinit 1
and boot into single user mode
mount SMS.Native.CD-1.3.13 for instance in /packages
and do
upgradepkg /packages/slackware/a/glibc-solibs-*.tgz
upgradepkg /packages/slackware/a/pkgtools-*.tgz
then
upgradepkg --install-new /packages/slackware/*/*.tgz

You might wanna check your config files thought after the upgrade.

Is this still the way to upgrade to 1.4.1? How destructive is the upgrade? Would hate to start over from scratch Smile

Destructive?
You always backup you config files, mysql, openldap databases and other importand files before the upgrade, just in case something goes wrong, never had an issue with upgrading my system even from older kernels though.

If you are upgrading from 1.3.13 you need to run lilo after the packages upgrades or your system will not boot.

Another thing you might wanna look before is the versions of packages for instance dovecot 1.0.x with 1.1.x branch. Some options are deprecated e.g default_mail_env it's not used any more, instead you add mail_location.

If you are using openLDAP export the whole DB to an LDIF via phpldapadmin, or copy /var/lib/openldap-data to a safe place, and upgrade only LDAP package (openldap-2.4.11-i486-3sms.tgz) NOT openldap-data-noarch-1sms.tgz, in some cases upgrading openldap removes my LDAP database too.
