    If anyone wants to run antiX-19 base or full with sid/unstable (and probably testing as well) repos (there are already core and net sid isos available), make sure you do the following.

    1, sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

    before changing repos.

    2. Only use antix and debian repos and only use sid/unstable – do not mix with buster, buster-backports, testing.

    Then

    sudo apt update

    3. Before dist-upgrading, make sure you purge fbsplash-antix otherwise the upgrade will fail.
    This will also remove screenlight-antix and console-grid-gui

    sudo apt purge fbsplash-antix

    4. You will need to manually upgrade sshfs. This will replace fuse with fuse3

    sudo apt install sshfs

    5. sudo apt dist-upgrade

    Note: Some python2 apps will be removed eg apt-notifier

    6. Don’t forget to reinstall fbsplash-antix and the removed apps from step 3.

    sudo apt install fbsplash-antix screenlight-antix console-grid-gui

    7. To remove multiple entries in menu under Desktop

    sudo apt install --reinstall desktop-session-antix

    8. Cleanup

    sudo apt autoremove

    @anticapitalista, i think the above works only for sysvinit version. if upgrading antix runit stable -> sid, there’s a conflict with init package, that can’t complete dist-upgrade.. been a couple of weeks since i last tested that, but that was my experience with previous runit version too..
    probably due to this : https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=924132

    Actually my test was with runit version – did you do step 3 before a dist-upgrade?

    ok, reinstalled 19.2 runit antix buster, now dist-upgrading to sid… currently in step 4 :

    The following packages have been kept back:
    init sshfs

    that’s what i remember.. manually trying to install init :

    # apt install init
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
    getty-run
    Use ‘apt autoremove’ to remove it.

    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    runit-init
    ….

    # apt policy init
    init:
    Installed: 1.56+nmu1
    Candidate: 1.57
    Version table:
    1.57 500
    500 http://ftp.xx.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
    *** 1.56+nmu1 100
    100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

    so, maybe a note about init package not dist-upgrading in instructions above..

    Let me try again.

    Ok – you are right – I have sent a bugfix deb of init and init-system-helpers to antiX sid nosystemd and testing nosystemd repos
    Thanks.

    thanks for the quick response… 🙂

    i still don’t see a new init version in a couple of mirrors i tried, so i guess i’ll wait a bit longer to try it out..
    a couple of other notes from dist-upgrade :

    about fbsplash. even if doing step 3 before dist-upgrade, i still get :

    dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/initscripts_2.96-3_all.deb (–unpack):
    trying to overwrite ‘/etc/rc.local’, which is also in package fbsplash-antix 0.3.2

    so i chose to remove fbsplash-antix, dist-upgrade, then reinstall.. that worked ok, but maybe there’s another way to workaround(?)


    another thing, dist-upgrade tries to change some files in /etc, that contain previous antix adjustments since installation (not personal) :
    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list (package: apt-antix)
    /etc/sysctl.conf (package: procps)
    could just be normal behavior, just sayin’..

    have to say once again, thanks for all your work in antix 🙂

    I made a few amendments to the original post.

    Bugfix debs of init and init-system-helpers should now be in the repos.
