    5556Parsix GNU/Linux has two main repositories. The official repository contains packages officially maintained and built by the project and the Continent repository that is the whole Debian testing branch except packages covered by official repository. For Parsix Boss, your default /etc/apt/sources.list file should look like this:
    5657
    57 %%(bash)
     58{{{
     59#!sh
    5860# Parsix
    5961deb http://packages.parsix.org/official boss main contrib non-free
     
    6567# Debian Multimedia
    6668deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main
    67 %%

    6971'''Updating Existing Installations'''
     
    7173Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 3.0r0-Test-1 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:
    7274
    73 %%(bash)$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`%%
     75{{{
     76#!sh
     77$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`
     78}}}
    7479
    7580If you are planning to update your system using APT, use the following commands:
    7681
    77 %%(bash)
     82{{{
     83#!sh
    7884$ echo "deb http://www.parsix.org/packages boss main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    7985$ apt-get update && apt-get install distro-defaults
     
    8288$ dpkg -P `deborphan`
    8389$ reboot
    84 %%
