lenny to squeeze upgrade - udev/kernel issue

Postby refracta » 2010-01-30 00:29

how I upgrade from lenny to squeeze and avoid the current kernel/udev problem

apt-get remove linux-image-2.6-686
edit sources.list to change from lenny to squeeze
apt-get update
aptitude install linux-image-2.6-686
reboot into new 2.6.32 kernel
aptitude full-upgrade
hal will configure itself the next time you use apt/aptitude
remove old kernel if desired

Not having the Squeeze dvd's - I decided the easiest way would be to follow the above instructions. I installed Lenny from the dvd set. After editing the sources.list I immediately received a not found 404 error when I tried the apt-get update. (I did not write down what the sources.list was before editing, just changed lenny to squeeze as suggested in other postings) After searching for a long time I found some examples of what the Squeeze sources.list should have and put that in. Things went smoothly for awhile ~20 hours. Then after the final reboot the mouse pointer became a permanent busy indicator with the display doing a blink every second. Something about the aptitude full-upgrade caused it to break, imho.

So I ordered a set of Squeeze dvd's and started over. Took about 2 hours and it's working. The following from Craigevil is an even better resource for a sources.list:
