    51 '''Updating Existing Installations'''
    52 
    53 -----------
     42== Updating Existing Installations ==
    5443Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 0.85.1 CD-ROM. Updating with CD-ROM deletes all additional installed packages. So users who have custom installed packages, should reinstall them after update through updated Parsix on the hard disk. A package diff file is saved to /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt that can be used to reinstall additional packages. Just use a command like the following to use the diff file:
    5544
    5645{{{
    57 #!sh
    5846# apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`
