How to switch from Incoming to Sid?

Post by /dev/urandom »

OK, I know: "If you don't know it, you should not do it."
Indeed I know how changing repositories works, I just don't know which ones to keep.

I am on LMDE "Incoming" (valid sources.list according to mintupdate), but interested in, at least, testing it with Sid repositories. Which repositories will I have to change into which ones? I'd presume some linuxmint.com lines should be changed.

indeed :lol:
anyway, i would do it in 2 steps:
1- update to testing;
2- if and when the end result is stable jump it to sid
- there's a couple issues atm in testing/sid: xorg is still not playing nice with prop drivers (both nvidia and ati) and the last update to 3.1 kernel wasn't smooth;

both breakages topics (regarding testing and sid) will be your friend, i believe :mrgreen:

now, the sources.list, you should keep always the mint entry as is, the rest is self-explanatory, i think

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport romeo
## testing ##
# deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
# deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
# deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free

## sid ##
# deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
# deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
# deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org sid main non-free
