jessie to stretch debian upgrade

I completed another debian workstation update (my blog) this time it is an ancient laptop and after changing sources and apt -f full-upgrade it suffered no stops, i had to autoremove stuff to get x sessions working and the box works as far as i can tell by printing and browsing.

The console is bereft of information which can be fixed and despite some oddites with with sane config files not much to report on.  Hardware wise it has a crappy broadcom wifi adapter which now downloads (check your sources file) from a new domain name to me.

More boring than troublesome

So its now on to upgrading the zoo’s servers which is when the long days start since there not just clients.
