I do this since early use of mldonkey...
Get cvs and build, copy mlnet-version in /usr/local/mldonkey folder :
drwxr-sr-x 7 mldonkey ju 4096 Nov 26 14:24 .
drwxrwsr-x 45 root staff 4096 Nov 18 15:05 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root ju 18 Nov 10 19:30 mldonkey ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 mldonkey ju 3131360 May 12 2003 mldonkey-2-0.4
-rwxr-xr-x 1 mldonkey ju 2886323 Apr 20 2003 mldonkey-2-4-rc4
I stop mldonkey, remove the symlink, recreate with the new binary, and
start (don't have to change my boot script), don't touch your ini file.
Never had trouble with my unfinished download, in case of, recover_temp
is the key...
For best use I moved incoming and temp folder on seperate disk, each on
seperate partition, then mrtg (in my case HotSaNIC) can give me good
info about my download process, via web from anywhere...
