Package: release-notes
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze

<command>aptitude</command> can show you detailed information of the disk
space needed for the installation.  Before executing the upgrade, you can see
this estimate by running:
# aptitude -y -s -f dist-upgrade
[ ... ]
XXX upgraded, XXX newly installed, XXX to remove and XXX not upgraded.
Need to get xx.xMB/yyyMB of archives. After unpacking AAAMB will be used.
Would download/install/remove packages.

This section should have aptitude replaced by apt-get, since that's what
we'll recommend for the upgrade to squeeze aiui.

I have fixed this bug related to the recommendation of using aptitude by
changing the line in the release notes to recommend using instead:

apt-get -o APT::Get::Trivial-Only=true dist-upgrade

I've test this in a pure lenny system (with the desktop task installed) and
gives much better results than aptitude as aptitude barks with errors when
asked to dist-upgrade.

I've also noted in the release notes that apt-get will provide an error
message if there is no sufficient disk space available for the upgrade.
