Convert MX Linux core to Debian GNU / Linux 9 Stretch

MX Linux, a stable based Linux distribution . The distribution came from a collaboration between its communities antiX and MEPIS Linux that has ceased to grow.

Uses Xfce by default , and is one σύστημα που συνδυάζει μια κομψή και αποδοτική επιφάνεια εργασίας με απλές ρυθμίσεις, υψηλή σταθερότητα, σταθερή απόδοση και ελάχιστο αποτύπωμα. Με λίγα λόγια είναι μια αρκετά light διανομή που δεν θυσιάζει την ποιότητα…

Below we will see how to upgrade your distribution to Debian Debian testing (Debian GNU / Linux 9 Stretch), nearing official linux

After installing MX Linux 16.1-beta1 from the installation image (you can also upgrade your system with the same ISO) I have heard the following:

From a root terminal

apt-get dist-upgrade

in case of of the last moment

After the same terminal

nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list

χρησιμοποιήστε το # για να απενεργοποιήσετε τα παλιά και προσθέστε το παρακάτω

deb testing main

So antix.list will look like the following

# Use with Debian Stable/Jessie repositories.
#deb jessie main
# Προσθέστε τα Debian Testing repositories.
deb testing main

to save your changes to nano
press Y and enter

and go to the next nano

nano /etc/apt/sources.d/debian.list

and add the following lines

deb stretch main contrib non-free

Save your changes as we did above and let's move on with the update

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

The upgrade will begin on your system, and if you've done all the above you'll be able to download about 800MB of updated .

If you see an error while installing from the terminal, use the following command after the end of the updates

apt-get -f install

and then another one

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

During installation you will be prompted in some services. Press NO and you will do it at the end, so you don't stop the upgrade. mx linux

In case you see (3-4 times) messages like this, press Enter for the default command

The default action is to keep your current version.
*** .xxxxxx (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N]

You are ready, you can proceed to a reboot and you will have a new Stretch system. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
