If you have access to a cd-writer you can go here
Install 64studio-install_1.0.0_i386 cd. (or amd64).?
Once the install is complete login to your desktop open a terminal
su to root:
# gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/64studio.list
deb http://apt.64studio.com/64studio/stable 64studio main
* Make sure 64studio stable is the only source enabled. *
gnome, xorg and libraries upgrade better
if they are not running during during the upgrade.
The upgrade "will" work from your desktop! A terminal is my choice.
When you have checked 64studio stable is the only source enabled.
Log out from your desktop, to the login screen.
typing [ctrl] + [alt] + [f1] will drop you into a terminal.
Login as root.
# apt-get update
The 64studio-upgrade will want to remove some packages
e.g. "firefox", this is fine, iceweasel will replace it.
I refused to accept bcm43xx-fwcutter,
after errors on first upgrade attempt.
I accepted the defaults to any questions. e.g.
bootsplash (Y/I/N/O/D) [default=N] ? I or Y [Enter]
