I'm trying to upgrade my redhat 7.1 system to redhat 9.0, mainly for the purpose of kde3.1 using apt-get. In my sources-list file, i had the following:
### For RedHat 9
## Core os and updates (required)
redhat/9/i386 os updates
## Stable packages (required)
9 kde3 kde3-extras
When i ran the dist-upgrade, it scarily announced that it would be removing 317 packages (compared to a small 44MB of ugraded/newly installed packages) among which were the kernel, apt, kde, and other vital packages. Why does apt seem to want to remove my system? What needs to be done to make this upgrade work?
