Converting from ubuntu edition to debian one

Postby linux-newbie » Sat Jul 21, 2012 5:43 pm

Hello,

I have the ubuntu mint edition installed atm but I'd like to use the debian testing one, any ideas what should I be doing? i.e change my repo's in sources.list to debian ones or what?
P.S: I don't want to reinstall it just for that, I want to keep my packages etc, apparently my connection is slow.

Thanks in advance.

you need to reinstall. there's no upgrade path between the 2. they are 2 completely different beasts.
