Nice  smile


There is a mistake in this statement.  This is a logical necessity.

Re: Backported Kernel in 3 simple commands

When I tried sid, I've mixed apt-get and aptitude, and aptitude dist-upgraded a few packages that apt-get held back -  I got a broken system. But sid is broken anyway, so I don't know what to think.  angel

Re: Backported Kernel in 3 simple commands

In the example Head_on_a_Stick posted at the beginning of the thread, both commands should do exactly the same whether you use apt-get or aptitude since the first one just updates your local APT database and the latter installs the metapackage for the backported kernel and its dependencies.  Primary differences between apt-get and aptitude are in conflict resolution, and there shouldn't be any conflicts to resolve in this case. angel

Re: Backported Kernel in 3 simple commands

i have been using apt-get since the debian potato days, and i have never ever had any problems. i always remove aptitude, as i never use it. i am usually on stable or testing though, never sid. and i religiously deborphan to continuously purge my systems of unwanted pkgs. the less you have, the less chances of things going wrong. also i keep replacing bigger pkgs with smaller ones as i find them.


leaner code is cleaner code is more efficient code

Re: Backported Kernel in 3 simple commands

I can confirm this to work, though I had to go a couple kernel versions back since fglrx does not like the latest backported kernel.
