[SOLVED] Is this how to upgrade to Etch?

Postby Hygelac » 2006-05-19 21:30

Hi. I'm new to Debian (I've used Kubuntu for a few months and Ubuntu and DSL a bit before that) and have done a net-install of Sarge on an old K6. I want to upgrade it to Etch. My sources.list currently contains:
Should I add these lines to update it?:

If I add these, should I remove any or all of the old lines; and afterwards, which of these commands do I run:
Code: Select all
apt-get upgrade

or
Code: Select all
apt-get dist-upgrade

? I've been trying to find information on these things myself but I would still appreciate any help.

The only think you have to do is to:
1) Change the stable word, with testing everywhere in your repositories and then:
2) Do an apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade [both of them in order, to be a testing debian happy user]

Good luck buddy! :)

I tried that but I then had some problems with locales that I was too lazy to fix, so I just installed from the Etch netinst disc afterwards. Thanks anyways though; I appreciate the prompt reply.
