    6668Parsix 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:
    6769
    68 %%(bash)
     70{{{
     71#!sh
    6972# Parsix
    7073deb http://packages.parsix.org/official kev main contrib non-free
     
    7679# Debian Multimedia

    8083'''Updating Existing Installations'''
     
    8285Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 3.0r1 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:
    8386
    84 %%(bash)$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`%%
     87{{{
     88#!sh
     89$ apt-get update && apt-get install `cat /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt`
     90}}}
    8591
    8692If you are planning to update your system using APT, use the following commands:
    8793
    88 %%(bash)
     94{{{
     95#!sh
    8996$ echo "deb http://www.parsix.org/packages kev main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    9097$ apt-get update && apt-get install distro-defaults
     
    93100$ dpkg -P `deborphan`
    94101$ reboot
