Re: Bug#309548: Woody->Sarge upgrade (was: Dummy run: upgrade of aptitude will remove perl)



(Follow-up from experiences yesterday. Today I made a copy of my system to
a free partition and did a real upgrade on that.)

IIRC this was the last backport before you had to also upgrade XFree86.

It also had wine 0.0.20030408-0.bunk probably from www.fs.tum.de/~bunk.
This proved to be a major hurdle. Only purging it before the upgrade
proved a workable solution.

After that 'aptitude install aptitude dpkg perl' succeeded and I could
continue with the actual upgrade using 'aptitude -f --with-recommends dist-upgrade'.

I encountered a few file conflicts from the unofficial backports:

I solved these by running 'dpkg -r --force-depends' for kalarmd, kdemultimedia-dev,
kdelibs4-dev, kdepim-libs, kdebase-kio-plugins, libkdenetwork2, openoffice.org1.1-mimelnk
I later forced a reinstall for kdebase-kio-plugins and libkdenetwork2.

This allowed the upgrade to complete without further problems.
The system reboots fine, kdm starts.

Major problem is that after I log in (even as a new user), KDE is not started.
I get a warning from the sound server that access to /dev/dsp is not allowed but
after that, nothing. The system is not hung, but the KDE splash screen is never
shown. I made sure that I had no 'old' kde-related config files anymore.
An .xsession-errors for the new user  is attached.

Conclusion:
- not an upgrade for the faint-hearted
- I still had to upgrade perl alongside apitude and dpkg in order not to
  have half my system removed (upgrading aptitude without dpkg made no
  difference to that)
- dist-upgrading using Woody's aptitude was not an option either
- I'll probably have to purge and reinstall KDE

Cheers,
FJP
