Re: KDE upgrade from potato to Woody

Note that "woody" and "unstable" are not the same thing. Use "testing" if
you want woody. If you change "stable" to "unstable", you will be upgrading
to sid. 


stable	= potato
testing	= woody
unstable	= sid

Both woody and sid have KDE and X, though different versions. sid currently
has X v.4.03-2, woody has 4.02-13. As far as I know, AA should work with

So, as Ivan said, remove the kde.tdyc.com line from your
/etc/apt/sources.list, and change the word "stable" in the debian.org line
to either "testing" or "unstable", depending on your preference, i.e.,

ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free

If you are planning on completely upgrading to woody then all you have to
do is remove the kde.tdyc.com lines from your sources.list file.  KDE is
in woody so the packages will be upgraded as well.
