Thanks Benny for the reply, and I will become a proper svn tester when I
can get my head round the best way to install it in future, probably on
a machine that I will just copy the db and import.

I uninstalled via add/remove in Ubuntu, would it have been better to
then delete the whole directory and then reinstall? I am not sure if
there would be any more to do. Although I have a copy of my db, would it
keep that file?

Uninstall via package manager is ok, it does what is needed.

The simple explanation is as follows: when installing 3.0.0 one must make sure 2.2.x is gone, so one can do:

1/if 2.2.x is installed via package manager, install 3.0.0 via package manager or uninstall 2.2.x via package manager and install 3.0.0 via source.

2/if 2.2.x is installed via source, one must uninstall it via source (make uninstall), or if that not possible, delete the folder. Then install 3.0.0

The complicated howto would be on how one can make them life side by side, but it is too difficult to explain that via mail ;-)


Perhaps we need to add this need to completely uninstall to the wiki
when going from 2.x to 3.x, I am happy to do that if I know the full
procedure needed. Despuite the bug I am really happy with 3.0.0, it is
sooooo cooool! :D
