Yesterday I upgraded from Ascii to Beowulf a Toshiba laptop with
Intel Celeron cpus.
apt-get update; apt-get upgrade
change repos to Beowulf
apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade
dist-upgrade failed mid way or so with the suggestion to run apt
This did the rest of the upgrade, leaving a few problems:
- cups wasn't installed but a bunch of cups-foo-bar packages were.
When I tried to install cups, apt-get insisted to install
cups:i386, which I didn't want of course. I had to remove 3 packages
with i386 architecture and remove the foreign architecture to be able to
install cups. apt-get removed the bunch of cups-foo-bar packages and
installed others; it finds its way in the tangle of dependencies (~:
- gksudo, while still there, doesn't work, as already announced. I
did my sudo trick and I can now run synaptic.
- The interfaces file still causes a 30s delay in startup. Since I
have ifplugd installed, the clause "allow-hotplug eth0" is useless. I
removed it and the problem was gone.
- Many packages to remove and possibly re-install to get a clean
setup, as usual.
I've checked that Slim and xfce-4 work fine, as well as Palemoon,
Emacs-26 and xfce4-terminal
Kudos for this good work!
