Debian "lenny" released

Recommended Posts

Was it easy / straightforward? I thought I'd have a quick look at the upgrade instructions but there was so much in there and so much which I didn't understand, I haven't upgraded my Etch yet. I was thinking it might be easier / less painful to just do a minimal install from CD (which was how I installed etch) rather than try to upgrade... :unsure:


aptitude update

aptitude upgrade (get etch 100% updated)

edit /etc/apt/sources.list (find and replace etch with lenny)

aptitude update

aptitude install aptitude dpkg (get the new lenny versions after editing sources.list)

aptitude full-upgrade


done (after a while :) )

I've had problems with a HP DL server that meant I had no networking with Debian 5 (lenny) - neither of the two broadcomm tg3 ports worked or the 2 x dual port Intel cards installed in it. Ubuntu Server worked fine, so can only assume something with Debian and the 2.6.26 kernel is to blame. Gentoo 2008.0 with a 2.6.24 kernel worked fine (install cd) as well as 2.6.27 kernel under Ubuntu server.
