Managing a Kanotix hard disk installation

The result of a Debian-type hard disk installation of Kanotix is a Debian Sid (unstable) system. There are different points of view as to whether apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade should be used for upgrading a Sid system.

On the #kanotix channel, the favoured approach is to apt-get dist-upgrade relatively frequently:

Leave KDE and/or [Alt] + [Ctrl] + [F1] then login as root to carry out the following commands:
# init 3
# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt-get clean
# fix-fonts.sh
# apt-get remove --purge lvm2 lvm-common
# dpkg-reconfigure kdm
# init 5 && exit

and you are done!

If you know what you are doing, you can do the following from an xterm to download the upgraded packages only for a later dist-upgrade from the console:
# apt-get dist-upgrade -d
