Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 0.90r1 CD-ROM. Updating with CD-ROM deletes all additional installed packages. So users who have custom installed packages, should reinstall them after update through updated Parsix on the hard disk. A package diff file is saved to /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt that can be used to reinstall additional packages. Just use a command like the following to use the diff file:

%%(bash)$ apt-get update && apt-get install cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt%%

If you are planning to update your system using apt, see BarryAptUpgrade here?.
