+This is DANGEROUS. Upgrade to newer Slackware release. This is the same as --upgrade, with the addition of checking to make sure that all the base packages, from the base disk set, are also installed. Prior to running dist-upgrade, make sure that the package cache is updated and the crucial packages (glibc-solibs, sed, and pkgtools) are upgraded. See UPGRADE.TXT on your local Slackware mirror.
