I am fiddling with my second Debian install.
I thought I would try unstable on my portable. Following various
instructions found by searching Debian.org & Google I did the following:
1. install stable from cd (base only)
2. change sources.list to point at unstable sources at mirror.aarnet etc
3. run apt-get update
4. run apt-get -d dist-upgrade
5. run apt-get -u -f --simulate dist-upgrade (All looked OK at this point)
6. run apt-get -u -f dist-upgrade
Apt reports "problems" with a number of packages at the end of this process
including ifupdown, netkit-inetd, netbase, exim, mailx, setserial, adduser,
Lots of things seem to be broken & I can't see why. Many of the rc.2
scripts seem to be missing. I can't get eth0 to go. Modules weren't being
loaded but do if I execute the script in init.d manually. Exim complians
it has no configuration file (although there does seem to be one) etc, etc.
Could someone suggest whay I have done wrong or what I should try. I
thought Debian would handle the upgrade a little more elegantly.
