Progress Linux

Installation

1. Installation of Debian

We currently don't provide any installer images that are Progress Linux specific. Therefore you need to first install Debian. There is a lot of good documentation on the internet on how to do that.

2. Upgrading from Debian

Debian systems can be upgraded by:

It does not matter which way you choose as the manual instructions below result in the exact same configuration.

2.1 Assisted upgrade from Debian

As of Debian 10 (buster) you can upgrade to Progress Linux directly.


  sudo apt install progress-linux

If you don't see any Debconf configuration dialogs, you may have a too high Debconf priority configured. In this case run a package reconfigure.


  sudo dpkg-reconfigure -plow progress-linux

After enabling the desired repositories, upgrade your system.


  sudo apt update
  sudo apt upgrade
  sudo apt full-upgrade

2.2 Manual upgrade from Debian

If you prefer not using the assisted upgrade, here's an example on how to manually upgrade from a Debian 11 (bullseye) system to the corresponding Progress Linux release.
