from stable to unstable? If yes:
"Debian does not support upgrades that skip intermediate releases"
I don't know whether the information above is dated now, but clearly
I'd go from stable to testing to unstable ...
As to unstable: Unstable is *highly* unstable currently, IINM: So if I
had to install Debian newly at this very moment I'd definitely install
stable and then trying, at some point in the future, to move the
system carefully to unstable:
""sid" is subject to massive changes and in-place library
updates. This can result in a very "unstable" system which contains
packages that cannot be installed due to missing libraries,
dependencies that cannot be fulfilled etc. Use it at your own risk!"
So for me it seems you're trying to reach the nearly impossible:
Building a working sid when sid is, errh, slightly down. To put it
mildly ... :)
At any rate: Good luck!
