- The recommended way to upgrade from previous Debian GNU/Linux releases is to use the package management tool apt-get
apt-get update apt-get clean aptitude search linux-image # I see there are choices for: linlinux-image-2.6.26-2-amd64 or linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 so I'm going to let the system decide apt-get update apt-get install linux-image-2.6-amd64 #System will change from device names to device id's. write down any conflicts to inspect later. SCD0 #If system says that some firmware might not work you can add non-free to list of sources in /etc/apt/source.list #deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ squeeze main non-free and install package that you need. I would google to see which package you need. I needed: apt-get install firmware-realtek apt-get install udev Reboot
apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade #Next step is to remove unneeded packages. Make sure you don't use any of them. If you do just install them first before running below. apt-get autoremove
