#1 Re: News & Announcements » Beowulf 3.0.0 is here! » 2020-06-20 06:48:16

thanks to all involved for the great work.

I was using ascii (2.1) After including the beowulf repositories in sources.list and running

suo apt-get update

I ran

sudo apt-get upgrade

everything went smoothly.
I want to work for a few days before I run

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Will it be correct to claim that I am now running beowulf, or am I still on ascii.

I am writing below what worked for me, please do this at your own risk !!!

The dependencies for the package usrmerge available in Beowulf are

debconf (>= 0.5) | debconf-2.0

as given in … ge_21.html

since usrmerge is not available for Ascii, but debconf 1.5.61 and perl are already installed in any standard ascii installation , after installing 'libfile-find-rule-perl' using apt or apt-get, download "usrmerge" from either Devuan Beowulf or Debian Buster and install it manually using

sudo dpkg --install usrmerge_21_all.deb

You will receive a prompt that the procedure cannot be reversed, and when confirmed the package will be successfully installed.

if you do this on an installation where /usr and / are in seperate partitions, you should run

sudo update-initramfs -k all -u

before you reboot.
