Basically, you just remove all your sources for 9.2 and replace them with
sources for 10.0. Do (as root) 'urpmi.removemedia -a', then go here:


and re-add all your sources for 10.0.

Then do a 'urpmi --auto-select' and all packages will be updated.

However, this method is *not* as trouble-free as it is with Debian, as I'm sure
many will point out.

See here for more info:


Make sure you read the 'Notes' at the bottom before proceeding, this may not be
for the faint of heart :-/
