Debian Squeeze to Wheezy
Monday February 24, 2014
Finally upgraded from Debian GNU/Linux “squeeze” to “wheezy”.
Debian wheezy came out in May of 2013, took me a while to get around to upgrade to it. Since I run Debian as a server, upgrading to the latest and greatest is not as pressing were I running a desktop.
Debian runs in a VirtualBox machine on my Windows 7 desktop. Virtual machines are great, no need to run a separate computer to host a server. With dual monitors, you get the best of both worlds without the expense of additional physical machines.
The upgrade took all of 30 minutes:
- Sign on as root, sudo is not going to cut it.
- Change /etc/apt/sources.list from squeeze to wheezy.
- apt-get update
- apt-get upgrade (116 packages, 36.2mb)
- apt-get dist-upgrade (282 packages, 192mb)
Booted into Debian GNU/Linuz 7.4 (wheezy) – excellent!
Can I call you home
You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours
I just wanna let you know
In my mind I call you home
