dist-upgrade


Hello. Just stumbled on this forum. Seems great. I am right now considering upgrading my workstation from woody to sid. Any suggestions, comments or warnings from you guys before I do it. Running KDE for x. Alsa for sound.
Thanks

Go for it Just be aware that there is the occasional (and I do mean occasional, not frequent) problem with a package here or there in sid and that sometimes it will make some things unusable. If you install apt-listbugs and read the potential bugs in your upgrade for every time you apt-get upgrade, you'll avoid them more often.
