Opinions on Best Way to upgrade from Lenny/Lenny Backports to Squeeze??
So, just wonderin' before I screw up my nice install
I have several Lenny's on several partitions, along with Ubuntu's, and Slack's too:)
Now, I wanna upgrade my e17 lenny(with some lenny backport pkgs)
to a full Squeeze system
So, Heres my questions-
1) First, do I have to edit my sources.list and change anything that says lenny
or stable to squeeze/testing?
2) Whats the best way to do this?
3) and; should I do this after hitting cntrl-alt-f1 and do it from the console?
so no desktop/gdm running etc
so, heres my current sources.list
and Merry Christmas everyone!
1) somewhat obviously, yes
2) read the release notes for etch->lenny for some hints. Upgrade aptitude/apt/dpkg first. Then (iirc) hit the kernel. Then do a full-upgrade.
3) Yes, in case graphical services are upgraded and restarted
linus, check at forums.debian (or just believe me): atm there is a bit of trouble when upgrading. perhaps wait a bit.
after changing the sources i usually do
apt-get install apt dpkg aptitude perl
(might be a bit different, im not sure yet), then apt-get upgrade, then apt-get dist-upgrade.
apt-listbugs is a usefull package.
good to hear you got the light shining :)
I did a minimal no x net install of squeeze, thinking to make a live cut
live-magic doesn't even work in squeeze:(
nor does the new remastersys pkg for it...
nor do alot of things including splash?
oh well; SqueezeBox will have to wait awhile....
I have now finished the newest 503box "lenny&3/4" with a bad ass fluxbox and e17-svn
chock full of good stuff:)
Look for post tomorrow about it too
I just did a fresh Testing install yesterday (new hard drive), and my only problem was the speaker being set to "off" .. hours of checking on what alsa packages I needed, moving all possible volume controls, and I just had to show, then check, the speaker switch. So no real issues here.
