Title: [Solved] Upgrading Siduction
Post by: RJ5050 on 2014/11/22, 21:28:59
I have been reading through the Siduction manual. When I got to the dist-upgrade section it says that to update or upgrade the system log out of the window manager and log in to a terminal as root to execute apt-get update. It says that the command must be issued at init 3.  But when I issue apt-get update at init 3 I get a string of errors regarding inability to access http:// ... which makes sense to me because as I understand it init 3 should disable network access.


So how do I get this to work?


Thanks.

init 3 should not disable network access - thats a fault in debians systemd units - enable network and done

I have never had that problem with init 3 and network.  But RJ5050, I do, as a lot of others, the "apt-get update" in x (init 5)  and then a "apt-get dist-upgrade -d" that will do all the downloads that needs to be done before the real distupgrade starts.  All this can be done in x (init 5) without problem. After that I go to init 3 and do the "apt-get dist-upgrade" without the (-d) part and apt will finish the d-u with the already downloaded files. There at least two advantage to do like that, one is that I in x can see if apt want to remove files, and if so check the forum and/or wait until another time with the d-u, the other advantage is that I can go on working with other things on the computer while apt is downloading all the necessary files for the d-u.

Right.  On two siduction systems with wired ethernet


Code: [Select]
systemctl isolate multi-user.target

will stop networking.  However


Code: [Select]
systemctl stop lightdm

will stop all user (init 5) processes, but it will leave networking up, so one can run d-u.  On two siduction systems that are wireless only,


Code: [Select]
systemctl isolate multi-user.target does not stop networking.  So there is some bug in the conversion of sysvinit to systemd, that affects ethernet networking.

1.  Is there any downside to using telinit instead of init?


2.  Is there any downside to using sudo (te)linit 6 from a terminal instead of the gui restart or         sudo shutdown -r now
