Re: HOW-TO Upgrading from #!Stable to #!Testing

That's a pretty good guide, nice work big_smile. Have you noticed any breakage with testing or is it fairly stable?

Re: HOW-TO Upgrading from #!Stable to #!Testing

Nice work there!  I'm assuming that you could do the same steps for unstable too?

@thevdude
Let me know about the results, cause I might want to do it for my desktop pc.  I'm thinking x64bit too.

Don't hold out on me. I'm extremely lazy and probably won't set up a backup for another week. D:

@thevdude
Do you still use the standard kernels provided by crunchbang or do you use smxi to fetch kernels?

Re: HOW-TO Upgrading from #!Stable to #!Testing

Nice. I just did this, but I left the Statler repo in sources.list and default release as "statler" in apt.conf. Is it odd that I had to run aptitude dist-upgrade 3 times to resolve all the dependencies?

Re: HOW-TO Upgrading from #!Stable to #!Testing

It's dead simple if you have access to another install of #!. As I said, in my case I did a fresh install on a virtual machine. I did look at the disc image to see if I could find what I needed without installing, but it eluded me. Anyhoo, it was just a case of copying

/usr/share/plymouth/script/

from the VM to my newly Wheezied computer and running

plymouth-set-default-theme script
update-initramfs -uk all

to apply the change and badda bing, badda boom.

Re: HOW-TO Upgrading from #!Stable to #!Testing

Been thinking (rarely a good thing). Wouldn't it make sense to leave the Statler repo in sources.list and let apt assign it the default priority? That way, any changes (unlikely, but not impossible) to any crunchbang-* packages or what-have-you will still be available, but Wheezy will take precedence with its 990 priority in apt_preferences. It's what I did and everything still seems to work.

Re: HOW-TO Upgrading from #!Stable to #!Testing

It's been a few days since the last post and I'm wondering if anyone that has tried this has had any subsequent problems?

Re: HOW-TO Upgrading from #!Stable to #!Testing

i 'essentially' did this on this particular 64bit ob machine (but let smxi control the actual upgrade process). no major problems with the upgrade. on this machine (intel graphics) compositing bogs down a bit - only noticable moving windows - and sound is muted on startup.

wot r your particular concerns? performing the upgrade or running wheezy?
