procedure to install and run debian kernel3.2 on squeeze


sir presently I am running debian squeeze6.0.6 on amdfx-4100 machine. So I want to upgrade my squeeze system to wheezy.

you have suggested that before doing actual dist-upgrade install kernel3.2 and boot into it and then run upgrade process. Sir can you please explain the procedure how to install kernel3.2 on squeeze6.0.6 and boot into it. Please notice that there are some unmet dependencies in my package system.

If you have unmet dependencies in your package tree you should resolve them first, otherwise an upgrade can (and most likely will) break your system.

On systems like Debian with an automatic dependency resolver you should never ignore unmet dependencies, unless you know exactly what you are doing.
To resolve unmet dependencies use
Code:
apt-get -f install
run as root.
