    4950Ramon r1 introduced the continent apt reporitory along with the official supported Parsix repository. The Continent repository consists of the whole Debian testing archive minus the official Parsix repository packages. Note that the continent repository for Parsix Viola is frozen now and will not receive updates from Debian except critical fixes. This is a new release policy to make Parsix more stable like approach. The Continent repository will be continued to be updated for the next Parsix release code name 'Boss Skua' and will be frozen before the final release of it, and so on. So if you like to keep your system more stable or want to do a upgrade to Viola using apt, please check your /etc/apt/sources.list file to contain similar lines to the following code:

    6365'''Updating Existing Installations'''
     
    6668Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 1.5r1 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:
    6769
    68 %%(bash)$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`%%
     70{{{
     71#!sh
     72$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`
     73}}}

    7379$ echo "deb http://www.parsix.org/packages viola main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
