    Dist Upgrade

    I had currently have ETCH running on a file server and I want to upgrade to Lenny, I know how to do it my only question is once this is done should I run any particular commands to clean up the system (by clean up I mean downloaded files temporary files etc etc) ?

    apt-get clean
    this will clean out the apt cache directory (lenny packages and all), so maybe run that prior to dist-upgrade

    apt-get autoremove
    will remove packages no longer needed

    but neither have to be ran. I don't think debian is known for leaving trash lying around the filesystem. maybe others have some opinions.
