Re: Upgrading from Etch to Lenny



Thank you for the response. So, it should be pretty much straight
forward. I currently have no data that I can't do without. Just been
getting familiar with Debian before making the jump from that other OS.
If I have major problems, I can always start from square one again.

I am new to linux. I have been running Etch for a month or so now on
my Gateway Desktop. I am considering moving up to testing. This brings
up the question of what is the proper way to accomplish the upgrade?

I normally just change the sources in /etc/apt/sources.list to the new
distro. Then I run 'apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade'. You may have
to work out some individual package conflicts, but it's not bad.

I highly suggest you back up any important data before you do this.

Tod Detre
