Blog: From sidux to aptosid, how to dist-upgrade cleanly
As it seems that the variation in approaches by the mirrors has led to a little confusion click the link to read more for the simple way to do the seamless upgrade from sidux to aptosid.
Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sidux.list and change whatever mirror you are using to one of:
http://sidux.com/debian or http://sidux.office-vienna.at/sidux/debian/
Then "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade".
You should be asked if you want to change from sidux to aptosid so say yes.
After this dist-upgrade has finished your sources.list files will have been updated to point to an aptosid mirror so "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade" again.You should now have the latest 2.6.35 kernel and all the other new aptosid packages and from now on your system will be fetching packages from aptosid.
