Just to let you know that antiX-13.2 is being worked on as a bugfix version of antiX13.1 with a few enhancements.

It should be ready soon, and will be available only for antiX-full versions. It will stick to Wheezy repo and our new antiX stable repo so it will be pretty solid and supported for the life of Debian Wheezy (usually 3 years).

Users will have the option to choose Testing or sid repos when installing to hard drive.

Once antiX-13.2-Wheezy is finalised, work will focus on 13.5 which will be based on Testing and rolling, just like antiX is meant to be! A lot of work has already been done and a test release of 13.5 shouldn't be too long after 13,2 is released.

Does "versions" indicate both 32 and 64 bit?

Why no Fluxbox/base version?

I'm guessing those using base are more experienced linux users and will just do a dist-upgrade.

13.5 will include full, base and core as usual.

Are there going to be user instructions for upgrade from antiX-13.1-full (Wheezy)? I am new in antiX and I apreciate a lot how complete, stable and fast is the system. I have the 64-bit and the 32-bit versions in two desktops (both using Wheezy), the first one in an updated hardware and the second one in a very old one (self made computer, with components more than 10 years old).

I figure a apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade should handle your question OK as long as you have Daves testing server repo enabled.

I'd wait on Anti or Dave to reply as I could be wrong though.

The team is working on making the upgrade as smooth as possible.

In general terms, roky is right. An apt-get update followed by apt-get dist-upgrade will bring 13.1 up to date with 13.2 in terms of applications etc. However, some of the changes are linked to what gets put into your home/username folder on install. To make these changes (users don't need to), you would have to make a few manual changes that I will make as clear as possible.

Thank you rokytnji and anticapitalista

I have the following repos:

http://www.daveserver.info/antiX/debs/ (testing)

http://ftp.es.debian.org/debian/ (wheezy)

http://security.debian.org/ (wheezy/updates)

So, I have Daves testing server repo enabled

I would like tu confirm that have to go to Textmode: Ctrl+Alt+F1

logon as root and then:

init 3

in order to apply:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get clean

and then go back:

init 5 && exit

I use that procedure for the aptosid distro

In any case, I will wait for the indications of the antiX Team, specially for the changes that are linked to what gets put into my home/username folder

No need to go to init 3 as they suggest at aptosid.

just open a terminal, su to root user and

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get clean

logout/login

The repos you have are just fine.

Surely it is preferable to use apt-get autoclean unless you're wanting to be redownload any packages you need to install a program?

You might be on a really slow internet connection, or be paying for how long you're on-line, etc.
