    This is what I did to upgrade antiX-17.4.1 pristine (ie nothing added nor removed) to antiX-19.
    Make sure all your valuable data is backed up.
    You may want to use iso-snapshot to create an iso of your present install and test the newly created snapshot does boot and install … just in case things go wrong.

    This guide will not produce an identical antiX-19, but I assume most people want to upgrade from ‘stretch – old stable’ to ‘buster – new stable’ and are less concerned about the looks, themes etc.

    If you try this and it breaks your install, don’t blame me!

    Use a root terminal and not synaptic and do READ the output before pressing Enter.

    1. Make sure your antiX-17 version is fully up to date before changing any repos.
    Also, do not have any packages set on hold.
    Only use the official sources.

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

    2. Change sources to buster so they look something like this

    antix.list:

    # Use with Debian Stable/buster repositories. Set as default for antiX-19.
    deb http://iso.mxrepo.com/antix/buster buster main nonfree
    #http://iso.mxrepo.com/antix/buster buster main nonfree 

    debian.list:

    # Debian Stable. Default for antiX-19.
    deb http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free 
    deb http://security.debian.org/ buster/updates main contrib non-free
    #deb-src http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free 

    debian-stable-updates.list:

    # Debian Buster Updates
    deb http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free
    

    3. Remove libapulse and apulse otherwise you will get errors.

    apt-get purge libapulse apulse

    4. Refresh the new buster repos

    apt-get update

    5. You MUST install these 2 apps BEFORE doing a dist-upgrade

    apt-get install libpam-elogind-compat apulse

    6. Now dist-upgrade. Make sure you read the output to see if it will remove anything important.

    apt-get dist-upgrade

    7. When prompted to accept new version of files or not, choose Y(es).

    8. Once the dist-upgrade has finished, remove unneeded packages/libs and tidy up Other desktops menu

    apt-get autoremove

    apt-get install --reinstall desktop-session-antix

    9. Reboot – and cross your fingers! (You DID make a backup didn’t you?

    10. Hopefully, you logged in to your newly upgraded to buster antiX.

    NOTE: /etc/antix-version, inxi etc will still show antiX-17. This is deliberate.

    11. Install apps not included in antiX-17 but are included in antiX-19. You can pick and choose.

    apt-get install app-select-antix artwork19-antix blueman bluez-obexd breeze-amber-cursor-theme-antix breeze-snow-cursor-theme-antix chroot-rescue cputool entr f2fs-tools firejail-profiles formatusb gnome-bluetooth icewm-icons-numix-square-antix icewm-icons-papirus-antix isomount lxtask newsboat ntpdate numix-gtk-theme numix-square-antix oxy-black-cursor-theme-antix oxy-white-cursor-theme-antix papirus-antix prettypink-themes qpdfview roxterm-common roxterm-gtk2 screenlight-antix sct slim-themes-extras-antix volumeicon-alsa-icons xserver-xorg-input-mouse

    12. If you get a flashing conky, edit ~/.conkyrc

    Add this line (about line 39) own_window_type desktop

    eg

    # Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus, pcmanfm and rox desktops)
    own_window yes
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar
    own_window_type desktop

    13. Set your themes, icons etc as you see fit.

    12. You should really upgrade the kernel. To do so, best to use cli-aptiX in the Menu under Applications – antiX

    Remember: If you try this and it breaks your install, don’t blame me!

    WOW! Can this post be pinned? I believe it will help a LOT of people during the coming months/year, as they transition to the new antiX 19. It should be close to the top for easy find.

    Thanks, anticapitalista!

    Naw. Not afeared on this chromebook. As I proceed to see if I can break it.

    Edit: 1st drawback. My ISP sux.

    On with it

    I got 7 gig left on ssd drive so I should be OK. If not. I’ll grab a live usb and scrap off what I’ll keep and fresh install. cli_companion is the only app being uninstalled and that was custom done by me.\

    Aww. The horror

    Now you get why I say my ISP sux.

    Edit. Hard reset router. Reconnect. Start over at
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    in root terminal again.

    I guess I’ll mention also. If I was doing a clean re-install. I’d be done by now. This is just a exercise on a antiX 17 chromebook . Kernel was already upgraded long ago to 5.2.3.

    roky, the “Debian Gnome Team” has axed (deprecated) python-vte package.
    That package provides “libvte9” and “libvte-common”, in addition to “python-vte”.
    The “deprecated” vte 0.28.2-5 still builds/runs fine under antiX 19
    ( and no known CVEs, per cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=libvte )

    Maybe you can persuade anticapitalista or stevo to build
    https://gitlab.com/antix-contribs/python-vte
    and host “libvte9”, “libvte-common”, and “python-vte” in the antiX/MX repos.

    what is best of the two options in /etc/apt.conf.d/99synaptic : with recommands “false” or recommands “true” when upgrading?

    Thanks!

    I cleaned cruft with autoclean and autoremove. But I know most text files ending in .old will litter my folders. I started this dist upgrade at 6.9 gig on my ssd being used.

    New install is still a option on this chromebook. Just showing my steps taken when running into upgrade snafus.
    Chromebook drive is so small. I figured I’d show how close one can shave this.

    My Broadcom dkms uninstall did not effect my eth0 broadcom chip. Posting this on hardline.

    Hello,

    what is best of the two options in /etc/apt.conf.d/99synaptic : with recommands “false” or recommands “true” when upgrading?

    Thanks!

    Keep it as with recommands “false” (BTW – I don’t have that file)

    Today was cleanup in /etc/apt/sources.list.d since my last inxi report . Seems my backups were loading because of the way I named em.

    Great perseverance roky!

    BTW – the Debian repo is a Greek mirror – you should use a US one.

    Regarding the choice of repository selection, sometimes I use a repo that is not geographically close to me but it responds with better throughput.

    Sometimes it depends on the time of the updates.

    Great perseverance roky!

    antiX 17 is indeed a very solid distribution and remains solid. If you already changed to the Debian Buster repo, the only other things you are missing are the distro-specific updates to antiX. If you also change the antiX/MX repos to match what’s current in the antiX and MX Version 19 releases, you’ll indeed get the equivalent software and as long as you do so without incurring any unrecoverable errors, I agree, you should be all set.

    Given what you have said, though I did update both antiX and MX to the recently released Version 19 implementations, I absolutely agree with you that there is nothing wrong at all with the previous releases. As long as you are getting the most important security updates, you’re fine updating from older releases. To further confirm this, I’ve actually done it in the past many times – keeping both older and newer versions on the same hardware. The only real differences, as long as you are updating key components, are primarily cosmetic.

    Choice: one of the GREAT things about this software family; stability and usability, two more of the excellent traits!

    No reason to change, as long as the security-repos are active anything that is urgently in need of an upgrade will get to you even if you use 15.
    To me the most exciting period of debian development is/was (it is fading) when testing becomes stable and between it and sid a new space is formed of the new testing. It starts as a replicant of the new stable and begins to take form. In this respect it is even more exciting than sid, it is new. For those testing while on stretch, knew buster and its boring nature for a long while. After some months have gone by, it is boring too, Bullseye (antiX-21) with my openbox minimalist installation is just as boring too. Time to return to just good old faithful sid (it only broke – some application failed, the system was fine – once a couple of years ago due to an inappropriate influx of some foreign pkg that mixed up dependencies and with help here I cured it). The original installation (despite of its cloning to other installations) begun life as Debian 7 wheezy.

    Why still use http for repositories in 21st century? When it is easy to just use https in all your repositories, what is the reason for people to still use them? All you need is to install apt-transport-https and add an s at the end of each repository’s http address. It is a very cheap security measure. I think it should be widely advisable. Unless there is some advantage in http that I misunderstand.
