Re: An interesting experiment
I would have up/downgraded to sarge. Then I would have done an upgrade
etch, then to lenny, and then to squeeze. That should work.
I am running squeeze on a PIII 500, 512MB RAM. Is running quite well :)

I just found a box in my basement that I haven't touched in many
years. I checked sources.list, and it was built when woody was stable
and sarge was testing. The box was running sid. So I thought it would
be an interesting experiment to see what is involved to get it to a
modern sid, or if it is even possible. The box is a PII/667. 192mb
ram, 6gb drive.
So far, I have run into the following problems:
1. I had to take debian non-free out of the sources.list (I had
forgotten all about that).
2. It is having a problem installing ncurses-base. ("package uses
Breaks, no supported in this dpkg")
I know it will probably break at some point, but I doubt I will ever
have need to reuse this box, and the data is way stale after so many
years...I thought it would be an interesting diversion.
