Hallo Alessandro,

my Beowulf to Chimaera (LXqt with openbox) went quite smooth. I had posted my notes to this list, approx. one month ago; you should find it by searching the subject lines for (most probably) the two release names. IIRC, I just did a last dist-upgrade to be sure to have all the latest packages, then adapted the sources.list and went 'apt update' - 'apt upgrade' - reboot - 'apt dist-upgrade' - reboot.

libre Grüße,
