Debian Dist-upgrade questions
I'm about to do an upgrade, migrating from Lenny to Squeezy in my desktop boxes, both at work and home.
I did some search in LQ and I like to be sure if this would be the right procedure:
1) Put "squeezy" repos instead of "lenny" in /etc/apt/sources.list
2) Be sure Aptitude is up to date:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install apt dpkg aptitude
3) # aptitude keep-all
4) # aptitude safe-upgrade
5) # uptitude full-upgrade
Is that procedure correct?
As long as the kernel will be updated I think I'll need to recompile NVidia graphics modules. Right?
I always did:
change lenny to squeeze
You can however do a fresh install from squeeze:
I usually do a safe-upgrade before a full-upgrade... it can reduce the number of packages in a potentially broken state if something goes wrong.
PS. I still think "upgrade" and "dist-upgrade" are better names than "safe-upgrade" and "full-upgrade"
Heres the link from the debian website. Also it's about upgrading etch to lenny it's quite informative
Just to make sure I would always do a
before I'll change the source.list
From the dpkg bot in #debian lenny->squeeze
thanks folks for the tips!
During weekend I did the upgrade from Lenny to squeezy, with Aptitude, following your advices. First I did it in a test box.
Udev issue appeared, as pointed by Craigevil.
Everything went OK, now I'm running Squeezy at home. Debian (and linux) is allways amazing and Debian developpers does a great job.
