Debian and its clones Oh glorious day! After two years of development, one of the prime Linux distributions has pushed out a new release - Debian 6.0 'Squeeze' has been released. The most fascinating aspect fo this new release is that it includes Debian/kFreeBSD s a technology preview, which fascinates me to no end. Of course, there's a whole lot more, including a brand new website for the project - the first major redesign in 13 years.

I have broadcom wireless on my laptop which is 6 months old. I didn't even have to leave official Debian repos to set it up.

firmware-b43-installer


It's nice to see the situation has improved, I luckily no longer have to use any broadcom devices, ath9k seems to work well for me on any distro I try these days.


I also haven't had to use ndiswrapper since flash was x86 only (2007/8?) and you had to do that on Ubuntu?


I should have said I wasn't talking about ubuntu as is, Im sure if I popped in a livecd today it would detect my old setup just fine, this was around Heron I think.

The hardware in question was a horrible belkin PCMCIA card that seemed to have everyone in forums tearing their hair out.
