    Is there a guide around that I can read & follow for converting antiX19.1 Base to ‘sid’ (unstable). The past few times I’ve looked (unsuccessfully) and tried (unsuccessfully) things did not work out well for me…

    Thanks!

    No guide available – but what did you do and what failed.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Assuming you haven’t any third party repos and you haven’t installed a desktop-environment.

    1. Change the repos to only point to sid/unstable in /etc/apt/sources.list.d ie antix.list and debian.list
    2. Disable the other repos ie debian-stable-updates.list, onion.list and various.list
    3. apt update
    3.1 apt purge fbsplash-antix (otherwise you get errors)
    4. apt dist-upgrade
    5. Read or post the output to see if anything critical will get removed.
    6. If there are any ‘broken’ packages do apt -f install
    7. Reboot after upgrades have finished.

    Thank you. I’ll give it another try and see what I come up with. In the end, I’ll provide a summary of what seems to work for me and people can comment/ edit/ use it.

    So here is what I did and am working with. So far it seems like a good transition although I am getting a lengthy delay (about 1 minute) on boot while the system hunts and sets up eth0 which I don’t use. Anyway, here are the steps I followed.

    Note: base antiX19.1 root password is: demo

    
    1. Change the repos to only point to sid/unstable in /etc/apt/sources.list.d ie antix.list and debian.list
    2. Disable the other repos ie debian-stable-updates.list, onion.list and various.list
    3. sudo apt update
    4. sudo apt purge fbsplash-antix (otherwise you get errors)
    5. sudo apt dist-upgrade
    5. Read or post the output to see if anything critical will get removed.
    --- take all defaults
    --- allow auto restart of services
    6. If there are any ‘broken’ packages do apt -f install
    7. Reboot after upgrades have finished.
    ===============================
    Next steps...
    upgrade kernel to 5.2.21 antiX
    
    Reboot

    Go in ceni and hit remove for the eth0 config and exit then the delay won’t happen anymore.
    Mine is running the 5.4.7 kernel no problems from a core-19.1 pointed at sid on my Dell D830 here.

    Normal == 🙂
    depends on the surrounding crowd ?!

    Thank you… I’ll give ceni a go once I get back to building my ‘arrangement’. 😉
