Bug#702996: please mention/provide upgrade path from gnome to xfce

Package: release-notes


after seaching a lot, it finaly turned up not only questions 
but also a solution on how to upgrade a squeeze gnome 
system to a wheezy xfce system.
Found at the end of this thread: 

This request seems quite justified especially for people 
in the world where only older hardware is available.

The method:

* removing gnome
aptitude purge `dpkg --get-selections | grep gnome | cut -f 1`
aptitude -f install
aptitude purge `dpkg --get-selections | grep deinstall | cut -f 1`
aptitude -f install

* dist-upgrade

* installing xfce4
aptitude install xfce4
(or xfce4-desktop)
