Unfortunately not. All the init scripts are also included on the disc.
This is necessary, to support user add-ons/modifications.
Programs, which we added in the newer release, also have their configs=

To make the life a bit easier, we set the initial file date to 1980, so=
can faster see what you changed.
So you have to go through all the directories, sort by date and copy wh=
/etc/sysconfig/config and /etc/sysconfig/software have to be done manua=
line by line. :-((
Somebody wants to write an update script? ;-)

This would be not easy. Because we'd need to support all possible
config file types from every program on DL. A meta-format, a DL config
file which configures everythink in the system would be much easier
to do, but this also limit the amount of what is configureable to what
this config file supports. So my short answer, this is nearly
impossible to do, one-way or the other :-(

By the way, I've do this manually by checking on the date.
I know that this is not effective, but work.
I'm using the command "ls -lrt" to sort the output list based on modified
date in reverse order.
If I found that the date of the file is 1980, them I just ignore the file.
I found that this will work and it took me for 45 minutes to finish.
I've tried first un-bzip original-0.6.tar.bz2 into a temp folder.
Then unzip my-0.5.tar.gz to override the same folder.
Unfortunately, this isn't work.
