Updating debian etch to lenny

At the same time, I reverted to grub for the time being, since I didn't want to change too much at once: . When the dom0 enters grub, be careful, Xen 4.0-amd64 / Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 won't necessarily be listed first, however this is the entry you must select. All being well, you'll now have Xen 4 running on you new Squeeze system.Any VMs still running the Lenny kernel will using their own copy of the old kernel thanks to pygrub.Now we know that everything is working, lets upgrade to grub2 (it'll have to be done sooner or later!): ┌───────────────┤ Configuring grub-pc ├────────────────┐ │ GRUB install devices: │ │ │ │ [*] /dev/sda (160041 MB; GB0160EAPRR) │ │ [*] /dev/sdb (160041 MB; WDC_WD1600AAJS-00L7A0) │ │ [ ] /dev/md1 (3002 MB; ??? ) │ │ │ │ │ │ ...otherwise it's probably just /dev/sda.Hi, I am running Maria DB 5.3 and want to upgrade to 5.5 latest.

The only pinning I had was mysql-common to origin ftp.as this package was conflicting with This is guaranteed to fuck your shit up at some later stage.

By all means, skip ahead if you want, but it'll go wrong.

If you’re running previous version of Debian, you can easily upgrade. Update all packages currently installed to the latest lenny versions apt-get upgrade 2.

Replace all occurrences of etch with Squeeze in the apt sources file (pico /etc/apt/sources.list).

I've done quite a bit more research and found that libmysqlclient18 was conflicting with as well.

I don't know why these conflicts are happening with and I don't know enough about apt to begin to hazard a guess.
