Debian Project News - November 3rd, 2008

| The Debian project is pleased to announce the fifth update of its
| stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (codename "Etch"). This update
| mainly corrects security problems in the stable release, along with a
| few adjustments to serious problems. Those who frequently install
| updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages and
| most updates from security.debian.org are included in this update. New
| CD and DVD images containing updated packages are available at the
| regular locations.


Board Support Package Supports Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Targeting the AMD Geode LX-based Cougar and Python SBCs, VersaLogic’s 
| DEV-CD-L6 quick-start board support package (BSP) uses the Debian Linux 4.0 
| (etch/stable) product running Linux kernel 2.6.25-5. The bootable LiveCD 
| installs and supports Ethernet, audio, video, USB, and serial communications. 
| The package offers 3 stable images for meeting functionality requirements. An 
| Advanced User Package (AUP) is available containing kernel sources, a 
| customized config file, and driver patches for running other Linux 
| distributions.

Making the Switch from Debian to Ubuntu and Back Again

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all, Debian has made leaps and bounds from the early days, and Lenny
| is truly a user-friendly desktop operating system, for Linux and Windows
| users alike. Between open source alternatives and wine the average Windows
| user could make the transition to Lenny without much of a problem. Several of
| my not so computer literate family members have managed to do day to day
| tasks with very few questions.


Debian Project News - September 15th, 2008

,----[ Quote ]
| Luk Claes reported on the progress regarding the release of the new stable
| release Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 Lenny. While there are still a lot of release
| critical bugs to be fixed, Lenny is in good enough shape to call for upgrade
| tests and work on the release notes. Regarding the upgrade tests, he
| especially asks to test the Linux 2.6.26 kernel. Regarding the release notes,
| he asks that any issues that should be documented should be reported as bug
| against the release-notes pseudo package. Further discussion will happen on
| the debian-doc mailing list.


My Debian Adventure, Part 2: Lenny

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, I also configured my desktop and tweaked many other interface
| settings, using My Debian Adventure as a guide to remind me how I wanted
| things to look. I guess I'll go through my entire Debian Adventure, to see
| what else I might want to configure in Lenny, but at this point, I'm
| already "up and running" and my Lenny system looks and works pretty much the
| same as my Etch system, only faster.

Why don't corporates love Debian?

| The Debian GNU/Linux project needs more support - men, money and machines.
| But, apart from HP, big corporates don't offer the project much. This was the

| research and development at Silicon Graphics in Melbourne.
