In this tutorial I will show you how to upgrade your Debian 6.0.6 Squeeze to Debian 7.0 wheezy.

Step1. Update your /etc/apt/sources.list  file:

We needed to replace all sources from sources.list file with Wheeze sources.

echo "deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ wheezy main
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ wheezy main
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main" > /etc/apt/sources.list

Step2. Now upgrade your system

 apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

This will take a while. Continue Reading…

The Debian project  announced the 6-th update of its stable distribution Debian 6.0 (codename squeeze). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories were already published separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 6.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away 6.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won’t have to update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org are included in this update.

New installation media and CD and DVD images containing updated packages will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to one of Debian’s many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:

Upgrade from lenny to Squeeze

Valic —  February 6, 2011 — Leave a comment

Debian has released a stable version of Debian 6.0 (Squeeze).

If you’re running previous version of Debian, you can easily upgrade.

1. Update all packages currently installed to the latest lenny versions

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

2. Replace all occurrences of etch with Squeeze in the apt sources file (pico /etc/apt/sources.list).

Here’s an example of what the file could look like after the change:

deb http://ftp.ro.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main
deb-src http://ftp.ro.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main

deb http://ftp.ro.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.ro.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main

3. Update apt repository

apt-get update

4. Upgrade apt, dpkg and aptitude packages first

apt-get install apt dpkg aptitude

5. Do a dist-upgrade to upgrade the rest of the system

apt-get dist-upgrade

6. Reboot

reboot

7. Check the debian version

cat /etc/debian_version

It should read version 6.0.

By default Debian etch 32bit allows a maximum of 4 GB RAM. The limit can be raised up to 64 GB with a single apt-get command / kerenl update:

apt-get install linux-image-2.6-686-bigmem

That’s it, reboot your system and you will be able to install up to 64GB of RAM to your system. Continue Reading…
