this is from 2004 and still running. I wonder if you can even update to =
the
latest version. I have had a notebook, I never brought to 8 as its =
hardware
was not supported from 8 onward.

If you really want to update, use sources to move from version to =
version. I
would move to 5.21 first and the 6.0, 7.0 ...

It will not be possible to compile new versions with the old compiler =
you
have.

The binary upgrade came later. When you have reached that version, you =
can
go via binary upgrades.

Of course, you can have a try and move directly to the oldest version
supporting binary upgrades. I only doubt that your old compiler will =
support
this.

Good luck.

Erich
