Squeeze to Wheezy upgrade

Postby zkab on Wed Aug 08, 2012 10:38 am

I have LMDE and want to go from Squeeze -> Wheezy.
Have been searching for how the source.list should look like but can't find anywhere ...
I suspect that I have some irrelevant entries in my source.list that I want clean out before updating to Wheezy.
My source.list looks like:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main
# Virtualbox
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian squeeze contrib non-free
# Iceweasle
deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ squeeze-backports iceweasel-release
# Scribus
deb http://debian.scribus.net/debian/ stable main
deb http://debian.tagancha.org/debian/ stable main
# Java add-on
deb http://www.duinsoft.nl/pkg debs all

Should I replace 'main, testing, squeeze, stable' with 'wheezy' and the just issue the commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

OK - but what should I do with all the 'main, testing, squeeze, stable' entries ?
Please tell me how should a correct source.list look like.

get rid of this. you don't need any kind of backports in lmde.

isn't the scribus pkg in the repos working? what version you get from that repo? latest has 1.4.0

Should I replace 'main, testing, squeeze, stable' with 'wheezy'
where? sorry but this is not clear.

and the just issue the commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
almost :D you should always use dist-upgrade with lmde

as for the rest, there's no real added value at this point to go from latest to testing: testing is in deep-freeze, so until fev. next year nothing special will change there and lmde in the end of aug will catch-up with testing (with UP5);
where you would get some action is moving to sid but can you handle it >> http://wiki.debian.org/DebianUnstable/

Thanks :D
Since I am trying to learn more about Linux (migrated from Windows and will never go back) the information you provided was very valuable to me.
If I have understood it right the correct source.list in my case will look like this:

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

# Virtualbox
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian squeeze contrib non-free

# A shell script to automate the retrieval and installation of the Oracle (Sun) Java Runtime Environment
deb http://www.duinsoft.nl/pkg debs all

yep, this way you will follow the default update-pack system (UP5 will hit latest by the end of aug).
have fun :wink:
