Uprade VL5.9 Light to....(Case Closed)
« on: April 18, 2008, 11:19:17 am »

Hello all,
Quick question:
Can VL 5.9 Light be upgraded to the full version VL 5.9 standard?

It is possible but would be time consuming.. would be better to do a fresh install of VL 5.9 Std.

I'm gonna say "no". You can add the all the components that Std. has, and you will have a "loaded up" Light that emulates Std. If you add all of KDE, it will emulate SOHO. Still, your system will continue to identify itself as "Light", and there will be underlying differences. It will be "VL 5.9 Light Cariboo Edition" ;)

I agree with kc1di, if you want Std, install that from scratch.

@nightflier, kc1di

Thank you,  ....
I was asking because I have THIS issue and it was recommended to try VL-Light although the computer certainly can handle VL-Standard.
