Oh boy. I can understand that. I went through the same thing myself a

take me 4 days :) But I agree, the installation routine of Debian is
hideous. Delusions of grandeur must be over and the routine *must* be

Depends which *people* Debian targets. Myself I think the Debian install

First as a newbie you do RH and KDE. Then you see that is way too much
and without finetuning. Then you get to Debian and FVWM and you get to
run a finely tuned machine that is just where you want it.
Remains one serious dependency... The Debian organization...

Please -- please help.
( NB: I also visit debian mailing list archive, thousand - thousand
mail, It's difficults from me to find out my problem)
er ... maybe try google? With search only limited to debian.org.
1) I want to upgrade complete Debain system, such as :
I have mutt-1.3 /need 1.4 or1.5 , kde-2.2/ need 3.x / and
kernel-2.2.20-idepci/ need 2.4.x
Please give me the details webaddress or ftp site. I'm using
I think what you need is:
$> apt-get upgrade
once you have finished the first installation. This will upgrade your
newly installed system. Or you could change your /etc/apt/sources.list
file and replace "stable" with "testing" and do:
$> apt-get dist-upgrade
and your distribution will be upgraded.
BUT, before you do any of the above, perhaps it would be nicer to user
-s and -u options to see what exactly will be upgraded. So, the first
command above will become:
$> apt-get -s -u upgrade
It will list what packages will be upgraded. BTW, when you do upgrade
KDE, you may run into problem as it requires some non-existence package
named something like libsensors. If this happens, come back here and I
will tell you how I solved the problem.
And of course, I am a newbie, others maybe able to give you more
accurate and complete information.
