How to upgrade from Woody(Stable) to Sid(Unstable)


Hey guys, how do you update from Woody to Sid?

apt-get upgrade -t unstable didn't do anything, it said 0 packages were available..

Hiya,

The only way to upgrade to sid is to manually edit your /etc/apt/sources.list file. Just open it and change where ever it says stable (or "woody" to unstable (or "sid"). The word stable and woody and unstable and sid are interchangable. Then save the file and do 'apt-get update' and then 'apt-get dist-upgrade'. That should do it!

the easier way is to install KANOTIX which is pure debian unstable .

www.kanotix.com

www.kanotix.com/files

all these scripts work excellent and the radeon and nvidia will install the correct drivers for you !!: )

They have some hd install scripts http://kanotix.com/files/
but it's not in their wiki yet.

They have an english section on their forum and a chat room. Maybe they would be able to give information on a hd install.

The LIVE CD is used to install the distro to your HD. Once up just open a term and type "sudo kanotix-installer".

Check out their forums more a nice how-to on this.
