    6062'''Updating Existing Installations'''
    6365Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 1.0r1 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:
    65 %%(bash)$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`%%
     69$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`
    6772If you are planning to update your system using APT, use the following commands:
    69 %%(bash)
    7076$ echo "deb ramon main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    7177$ apt-get update && apt-get install distro-defaults
    7379$ apt-get install parsix-kernel (or parsix64-kernel on amd64 systems)
    7480$ reboot
