Upgrading to testing
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
This is my first post to this list.
I am running Sarge at the moment but would like to upgrade to testing. I
have been using the 64-bit version for just two weeks. I have run
testing for about two years on a 32-bit box.
The first time I tried an upgrade, it broke due to Xorg. I couldn't fix
it no matter what I tried so I reinstalled. Now I am dead scared to
upgrade - but I need to do so in order to get my nForce-based sound card
working as the module for the card is only available in the kernel
images in etch.
Having read some help pages, I think the following will help me check if
things will break again:
Change sources.list to testing
Run apt-get -s update, then run apt-get -s dist-upgrade
Then if there are no messages about incompatibilities, go ahead and do
the real thing.
Can someone tell me if this is the right path to take?
