I recently installed 2004.1 on my powerbook, only to see that 2004.2 had been released. Gentoo took quite a bit of time to install and I would like to avoid a reinstall. Must I upgrade through a complete install, or is there a command i can run to update?

--thanks

Code:
emerge sync
will update your portage tree, then:
Code:
emerge -u world
will update everything you have installed on your system.

2004.1 and 2004.2 are the versions of the live cd's. Use them only for installing gentoo. The nice thing about this distro is that it is very very easy to update.

I was getting sort of confused between the livecd and the actual gentoo version numbers. So they just come out with a new livecd whenever the changes to gentoo are significant enough?

--thanks for answering my total n00b question
