Wheezy / Waldorf updates

Just want to make sure I understand this correctly. Wheezy is Debian testing, so if you have the "testing" repo in your sources.list file, you will track the rolling release of Wheezy as all the updates come through during the development process. Unless you change your sources to "wheezy", after the release of Wheezy, you'll then continue to track the next testing. So if you have "wheezy" in your sources, you'll track Wheezy during development and when it's released, you'll then track it as "stable". Either way, you shouldn't have to reinstall, as you will get upgrades as and when they are released.

Does the same apply to #! Waldorf? Theoretically, you could install #! Waldorf and just continue to update it until the actual release?

Re: Wheezy / Waldorf updates

A more or less philosophical question:

can we assume that dist-upgrade is the preferred way of upgrading the system in wheezy/waldorf?

Re: Wheezy / Waldorf updates

@core: As opposed to apt-get upgrade

Edit: OK, by the way you ask back I can guess that dist-upgrade is preferred. big_smile I'd just like to have an 'official' statement, so that all of those who give support use a 'unified' method.

Sorry, I just realised how my reply might of looked. I didn't mean to come across as an arse. sad

Anyhow, I always tend to use 'dist-upgrade' as it handles everything, including any new dependencies. smile

Re: Wheezy / Waldorf updates

^ No arse detected smile Thanks for the clarification, I have never used 'testing' over a long period before - and 'dist-upgrade' is explicitly recommended for unstable.

Anyway: Waldorf is great. Excellent! Good job, dear Leader big_smile

Oh, one more thing: I'd recommend the inclusion of a "Help" section (forums, website, maybe Quick Reference or Wiki) in the openbox menu, like those days smile

Agreed and noted. I am hoping to be able to improve this during the development cycle.

I agree with this.. There were a few times that I had been told that

apt-get dist-upgrade

Was not the preferred method.
Now we have an 'official statement' to quote in future help topics. big_smile

Re: Wheezy / Waldorf updates

Excellent question SabreWolfy, I was wondering the same thing. Basically, if we install Waldorf, there's no need to reinstall when it becomes a stable build. Gonna install tonight smile

Re: Wheezy / Waldorf updates

^ Even better - if you change the sources.list to point to testing instead of wheezy (and also change /etc/apt/preferences the same way) you will have a system that follows testing forever. Until we all die big_smile
