    7375Parsix 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 Kev, your default /etc/apt/sources.list file should look like this:
    7476
    75 %%(bash)
     77{{{
     78#!sh
    7679# Parsix
    7780deb http://packages.parsix.org/official kev main contrib non-free
     
    8386# Debian Multimedia
    8487deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main

    8790'''Updating Existing Installations'''
     
    8992Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 3.0r0-Test-2 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:
    9093
    91 %%(bash)$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`%%
     94{{{
     95#!sh
     96$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`
     97}}}
    9298
    9399If you are planning to update your system using APT, use the following commands:
    94100
    95 %%(bash)
     101{{{
     102#!sh
    96103$ echo "deb http://www.parsix.org/packages kev main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    97104$ apt-get update && apt-get install distro-defaults
     
    100107$ dpkg -P `deborphan`
    101108$ reboot
