Assuming that you have 2 systems, one running gNewsense, and the other running Ubuntu Dapper with the latest system updates:
Login and open the Terminal and type two commands to transfer the gNewSense apt repository data from the gNewSense machine to the laptop, straight into the user's home directory. For example:
$ scp firstname.lastname@example.org:/etc/apt/sources.list . $ scp email@example.com:/etc/apt/*.gpg .
Move these files into place:
$ sudo mv sources.list /etc/apt/ $ sudo mv *.gpg /etc/apt/
Update the apt system, and upgrade the distribution from Ubuntu to gNewSense:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Install the gNewSense artwork and desktop packages, which will automatically remove the Ubuntu ones, and purge the system of non-free kernel modules:
$ sudo apt-get install gnewsense-desktop gnewsense-artwork $ sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-restricted-* nvidia-kernel-common
Note: PowerPC has no nvidia-kernel-common
Yaboot has to be installed manually Finally, reboot and you are done
