Blog: From sidux to aptosid, how to dist-upgrade cleanly

Contributed by bfree on Sep 13, 2010 - 05:19 PM

As it seems that the variation in approaches by the mirrors has led to a little confusion click the link to read more for the simple way to do the seamless upgrade from sidux to aptosid.

Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sidux.list and change whatever mirror you are using to one of:

http://sidux.com/debian or http://sidux.office-vienna.at/sidux/debian/

Then "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade".

You should be asked if you want to change from sidux to aptosid so say yes.

After this dist-upgrade has finished your sources.list files will have been updated to point to an aptosid mirror so "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade" again.

You should now have the latest 2.6.35 kernel and all the other new aptosid packages and from now on your system will be fetching packages from aptosid.
