When updating from lenny, apt may now refuse to proceed with an upgrade, due to expired keys.
# apt-get --simulate --show-upgraded upgrade The following packages have been kept back: linux-image-2.6-xen The following packages will be upgraded: gzip libaudiofile0 libc6 libc6-dev libexpat1 libkrb53 libltdl3 libpq4 libtool libxerces2-java locales python2.4 python2.4-minimal 13 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
For Etch, Xensource shipped their own modified PV kernel package (2.6.18 based).
But for my purposes I made the decision to stick with apt-get based on conclusions and observations of others.
Although I don't know how to recall the actual command I gave for the upgrade, I suspect it might not have been: apt-get dist-upgrade, but "apt-get full upgrade". Since then I've just used aptitude since it works the same from the command line.
But when I try to build up the apps on my own, I can never do as well as Puppy and Damn Small Linux — both of which I’ve used extensively over the past year and which I value very highly.
I hate to give up running Debian or Slackware on this laptop — I’ve tried both.
I’ve complained numerous times in the past about the Ted word processor being broken in Debian. I’m wondering if I should even be running Debian on this 233 MHz Pentium II MMX, 64 MB RAM, 3 GB hard-drive laptop.
On my many Debian installs, I could neither create a new file in Ted nor open an old one. I tried Ted again on my Compaq Armada 7700dmt (the Laptop), now a Debian Etch machine (with Xfce and, since last night, Fluxbox) that could really benefit from Ted working. I figured that it was maybe a Lenny-only thing — some other dependent package got updated and magically made Ted work. I remember trying this “transcoded fonts” solution and having it not work. Yes, I have three Debian installs (two Lenny, one Etch), and Ted works on one (Lenny) of them. The Compaq performs OK with Puppy Linux and a bit better with Damn Small Linux.
According to an online survey conducted by Heise online in February 2009, Debian Linux is the most widely used free server operating system in German companies with 47 percent (multiple choice possible).
Among free desktop operating systems, Debian Linux occupies second place behind Ubuntu (60.8%), which is also derived from Debian – closely followed by open SUSE (28.8%, as of February 2009). Updating Webmin was a breeze since it has a simple update button. I cant find an update button and googling around and visiting forums hasn't given me a clear answer.
