Finding old debian etch iso

Finding ’s was little crucial when things doesn’t work well during upgrades. Especially when the drives go wrong and you have to continue running the good old distribution, better keep a copy of the ’s.

Here I found those ISO’s to get going.

Quick upgrade to Debian Lenny

Are you planning to upgrade your Debian etch on your server? It’s quite simple. You just need to follow these two steps.

Edit sources.list

sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list

and change all words etch to lenny,

Update and upgrade

sudo aptitude update

sudo aptitude install apt dpkg aptitude

sudo aptitude full-upgrade

that is all.

Do it on command line instead of running it through GDM/KDE so that these services get started automatically without any issues during the upgrade.
