Hello.

Trying to update debian 9 (strech) to 10 (buster). I do this because i want to have the ->security updates<-

I do this :
- sudo -s ( & password)
- nano /etc/apt/sources.list"
- add line :
"
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main
"
save & exit
-apt update
-apt upgrade
-apt dist-upgrade
-sudo reboot

BUT it's NOT WORKING.
Reboot freeze the gemini. So i made "Fct+Esc" to shutdown.
And if i try to restart with "esc", the screen stop on "gemian booting" image.

So someone had updated debian 9 to 10 with success ?
Or just have security updates working ?

I found a solution to make the reboot.

I had uninstall libreoffice packages with :
sudo -s (& password)
apt remove libreoffice*

The package libreoffice-base doesn't want to uninstall.
So i do:
nano /var/lib/dpkg/status
and remove all entries about the package libreoffice-base
and save.

I changed "/etc/apt/sources.list"
with
"deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib non-free
and make a new apt update & upgrade & full-upgrade

So debian 10 is installed.

I go to /etc/systemd/system.conf
and change DefaulTimeoutStopSec=90s
by DefaulTimeoutStopSec=5s
and save

i enter : systemctl daemon-reload
and
reboot
The system reboot well.

BUT WHEN IT START AGAIN, it stop to "gemian booting" image.
ANY IDEA ?

I admire your efforts!  I would like to do the same thing. The Debian Stretch version of conky is buggy and I would like to upgrade to Buster's version of conky, but when I followed your steps (without "apt upgrade," only "apt install conky-all"), the install threatened to remove all gemian components like gemini-desktop, etc, so I said "no."

I remember with my Sharp Netwalker (ubuntu 9), I could use the source.list for ubuntu 10 to upgrade a few packages, but not a full upgrade--that approach is not working here.

(I posted on your Tutorial thread about your great help--again, thank you)

Sorry I can't be more help.

I must admit, however, I'm having a great time with Stretch/Gemini. I use my Cosmo for my phone, so the Gemini is just for a Linux laptop.

I hadn't turned on my Gemini in a year, and now I'm using Gemian all the time. My poor Netwalker... This is what the Netwalker should've been.

[OT] I didn't buy a Netwalker back in the days, I preferred my Zaurus since it was more compact, but still it was an interesting device. Still hoping to see a new Zaurus, with updated specs, Cosmo-like keyboard and a swivel screen :)

Wouldn't that be fun :) I still use my Netwalker just because the form factor was so cool at the time, but the keyboard is maddeningly spongy. Fast typing is not allowed. On the other hand, I'm a terrible typist, so I'm slow and make mistakes with or without a Netwalker :)

Me too ;-)
Only debian on my gemini.
I have a phone for talk and basic things, and my debian gemini for working all the day like an ultra mini laptop always in my 'pocket'.

Have a look here: https://github.com/gemian/gemian/wiki/DebianBuster.

That might help with upgrade to buster.
