I have a mini-PC with an Intel 945GCLF2 motherboard
(Intel 82945GC chipset + Intel GMA 950 graphics)
It is running Voyage MPD 0.7.0 (which was expanded
to include the above hardware). It serves as a
stand-alone digital music source (via USB to external
DAC) to my hi-fi.
I was wondering whether it would be possible to upgrade
the OS to a later version and would appreciate advice on
how to do it (if it is possible).
(I need minimal graphics (Xorg) to run Sonata)
Should I try to update/upgrade the key audio
components (Alsa, MPD, Sonata) via apt-get
or would that cause incompatabilities with MPD 0.7.0
Should I try to update/upgrade the whole system
via apt-get update or upgrade.
Or should I try a new install of 0.9.5 or 0.10.0.
(My concern here is a hardware incompatibility with the new OS)
