I was going to ask if one could do this using dselect rather than
apt-get dist-upgrade, but concluded that it was a dumb question and
that the answer was obviously 'no'. I guess I was wrong. Do you have
to do anything special in dselect, or it's just a straight Upgrade?
When woody becomes stable, we'll just set our sources.list back to
stable and carry on?
I'm also confused about kernels. I think I read that there was a
choice of kernel versions to use with woody. I guess there's no
problem with upgrading to woody using the same old kernel? I assume
that dselect doesn't do kernels.
Sorry if I'm asking dumb questions after all :-)
