Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

@hikinrory no, if you've already installed the experimental Lithium, all you need to do to keep going is to change the apt sources to point to the official repositories:

deb https://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian lithium main

Any improvements in the official release will be in the packages, so you'll get them too.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

I haven't installed the experimental but in the past when a new release came out for my daily driver, I just edit the sources and apt-get dist upgrade. I've kind of wondered if there was an advantage to a clean install. This machine looks and acts just like it did when I installed Jessie on it. When I upgraded to stretch, still the same. I like to save my surprises for Virtualbox or something I'm not counting on everyday.

I came to BL because of a bad upgrade on Crunchbang++. I figured if I was going to have to do a clean install, I might as well try something new.

I see. You're currently running Debian Stretch? In that case, just editing apt sources and doing a dist-upgrade is unlikely to be enough. Remnants of your current operating system will need to be cleaned up.

A clean install of BunsenLabs Lithium is more likely to go smoothly, but as rbh says, the final decision is yours.
