My Chimaera to Daedalus upgrade saga

Decided to take the leap and upgrade from Chimaera.
Here is how it went...
- read release notes, upgrade notes
- changed apt sources.list
- sudo apt update
- sudo apt dist-upgrade
- answer some questions about config files
- 25 min later, done
- reboot

Seriously, it was THAT uneventful. smile

OK, I did have to change my slim.conf to auto-login, and my grub wasn't themed.
fixed with
sudo mkdir /boot/grub/theme ; sudo cp -af  /usr/share/desktop-base/grub-themes/sapphire-grub/ /boot/grub/theme/
and add this to /etc/default/grub
GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/theme/sapphire-grub/theme.txt and sudo update-grub

My system was originally installed with ASCII, and this is my 3rd dist-upgrade with very minor issues.
Very happy - GREAT WORK Devuan team ! cool
