I am currently running Amber on my Librem15v3.
A quick read through the lengthy thread on the PureOS rolling release makes me cautious to switch to the new Byzantium release. Overall I didn’t have any major issues when using/maintaining my Librem with Amber when it was a rolling release and appreciated the regular updates to various applications I use.
I would like to switch to the new rolling release, but I have 2 doubts,
how does one actually make the switch? I found these steps in an article on nix.craft,
- Backup your system.
- Update existing packages and reboot the Debian 9.x system.
- Edit the file
/etc/apt/sources.listusing a text editor and replace each instance of
buster(I assume here one should replace
- Update the packages index on Debian Linux, run:
sudo apt update
- Prepare for the operating system upgrade, run:
sudo apt upgrade
- Finally, update Debian 9 to Debian 10 buster by running:
sudo apt full-upgrade
- Reboot the Linux system so that you can boot into Debian 10 Buster
- Verify that everything is working correctly.
are these valid?
- What is the current state of PureOS Byzantium on a Librem, usable? Should I wait a couple more months before switching?
