Re: Script to update CrunchBang

I do what Sector11 does, unless someone tells him it's a bad idea and he decides differently. Then I do that instead  neutral

Whatever, full backup followed by liberal use of apt-listbugs and a conservative apt-mark hold regime means no major borkage for a while (fingers crossed smile )

Re: Script to update CrunchBang

I always use apt-get dist-upgrade, and the only trouble I have had is due to bugs in upstream packages (e.g. the recent catfish trouble) or very specific hardware issues (like my wifi dongle).

Re: Script to update CrunchBang

Did anyone figure out what the difference between dist-upgrade and upgrade were?

Re: Script to update CrunchBang

upgrade
Used to install the newest versions of all packages currently installed on the system from the sources enumerated in /etc/apt/sources.list(5). Packages currently installed with new versions available are retrieved and upgraded; under no circumstances are currently installed packages removed, nor are packages that are not already installed retrieved and installed. New versions of currently installed packages that cannot be upgraded without changing the install status of another package will be left at their current version. An update must be performed first so that apt-get knows that new versions of packages are available.

dist-upgrade
In addition to performing the function of upgrade, this option also intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of packages; apt-get has a "smart" conflict resolution system, and it will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense of less important ones, if necessary.

Re: Script to update CrunchBang

Hmm interesting. I guess I'll start using dist-upgrade for Sid now. Never had any issues with regular upgrade. But it seems to be the safer bet with unstable. Nice thread

Okay running a decent update right now. Does dist-upgrade make it so you won't need to run autoclean or autoremove afterwards? About to find out maybe.

Yeah I guess so. I had 1053 packages before I just ran dist-upgrade. now 1048. interesting

Re: Script to update CrunchBang

Perhaps it's the ocd in me. This is off topic question but I have updated font-config a few times after installing infinality. Does that override the whole set up? I haven't noticed honestly.I should have made it so they wouldn't upgrade anymore

Re: Script to update CrunchBang

Try Slackware, that should get rid of your purge-itis.  devil

As to infinality, IDK. IIRC the infinality debian package is not compatible with newer freetype versions.

Re: Script to update CrunchBang

Is it possible to go back to older version? I have the package. But if I remove the most recent it pretty much takes my whole system with it.
