First and foremost, let me express a big THANK YOU to all folks involved in making of Garuda. I'm using it for pretty much a year now, and for the whole time, I've been enjoyng the ride greatly! Garuda just brought an end to my previous, never ending, distro-hopping
With that being said, there's a question, that boggles me, lately:
Is there a (hopefully convenient) way, how to "sync" my older Garuda install with it's most recent release (Harpy Eagle, at this point, but generally any future one too)?
Let me explain my primary motivation behind the question.
Recently, I found a bug in my system, where KDE doesn't run under Wayland (Switching to Wayland: Failed to open drm device at "/dev/dri/card0")
Me and @UltraBlack teamed up, and tried to debug the issue, but even after several days of playing with manually compiled KWin, and some other things, we were not able to get to the cause of the problem.
However, by running the latest Live ISO, we have found, that in Harpy Eagle, this issue doesn't exist anymore. And while this one specifically is not essential for me (X11 works perfectly fine, and I have no problem sticking with it for the time being), I was thinking, that it would be generally a nice option to have, if we could just update our system to the latest release. Not only to correct issues like this (that were somehow fixed down the line), but also to enjoy all the advances, that are added to Garuda, as time passes.
I was searching the forum for the answer, and closest to one I've got here: How to update garuda - #3 by solted
And from what I understand, it seems, like currently there is no easy way, how to achieve that, without reinstalling the system. And while that certainly can be done, it (at least partially) defeats the purpose of a rolling release distribution, in my opinion, at least for reasons I've tried to list above...
So, that's why I'm asking - has such a "scenario" already been considered? And if so ... is there some practical way, how this could be achieved?
Thanks in advance to anybody for any potential answers, either positive, or negative
