How to upgrade from lenny to sid
Hi, I want to share my experience in dist-upgrading from a fresh new installation
of lenny to sid(unstable) because I’ve lost not few time trying doing this since the package system alwasy break for some reasons which I don’t know – but the solution was really easy -. Procedure to dist-upgrade from lenny to sid:
1) Install Debian with a small cd image in the standard way.
2) Log in your new system.
3) Open /etc/apt/sources.list with your preferred editor (you have to be root to
modify this file and add the following line)
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
4) From a root console do the following commands: # apt-get update # apt-get dist-upgrade 5)
Now if you want to test you could reboot your system and enter in your upgraded
Debian Sid system.
thnxs any suggestion are most welcomed..
