I installed the official Haiku Alpha release from CD onto my laptop.
How can i update this to the latest level?
Or is there any point?
I wasnt able to find any docuentation that tells you how to do this.
download and burn the cd image ... http://haiku-files.org/cd/ install from there over the r1a1 install. again, this is a nightly image and not as well tested as the alpha.
Haiku doesn't have an update system yet. You could download a nightly RAW image, mount it with a double click and use the Installer app to install it all to a second partition. I'm not sure if it would work to mount that image and simply copy everything besides the "home" folder to your existing installation and reboo
