Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 1.0r0 CD-ROM. Updating using the Parsix CD-ROM deletes all additional installed packages. So users who have custom installed packages, should reinstall them after finishing the update process. 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, after rebooting to your new updated Parsix system:

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

If you are planning to update your system using APT, use the following commands:

%%(bash) $ echo "deb ramon main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list $ apt-get update && apt-get install distro-defaults $ apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade $ apt-get install parsix-kernel (or parsix64-kernel on amd64 systems) $ reboot %%

=====Note for Intel Wireless 3945/4965 Users=====

If had trouble getting IP from the wireless network, try to add access point address to your network configuration. Use the following command to get the access point address:

%%(bash) $ iwlist wlan0 scan | grep Cell | awk 'BEGIN{FS="Address: "}{print $2}' %%
