[Solved] Upgrading Siduction

(1/2) > >>

RJ5050:
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

RJ5050:
Thanks that did the trick!

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: ---systemctl isolate multi-user.target
--- End code ---


will stop networking.  However



--- Code: ---systemctl stop lightdm
--- End code ---


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