Debian and its clones What a lovely holiday to release the latest and greatest creation brought to us by yours truly, Debian. February 14th marks Debian GNU/Linux 5.0's supposed release into the wilds of the world, nearly two years after 'etch,' lenny's predecessor. The date is set nearly in stone unless something very serious goes wrong in the final days of development or if one of the needed servers for download kicks the bucket at the wrong moment. Read on for the scoop on the most prominent of features.

BTW: I've had big problems with kernel 2.6.26 - 2.6.24 is ok for me. But 2.6.26 did (does?) not work for me. I think it has something to do with the USB stack. Anyone having a similar problem?


I had a lot of trouble with the 2.6.26 kernel at first. Issues with the EEEPC were legion. The most memorable bug was the semi-automatic shutdown, usually just as X was starting, due to a bogus ACPI "event." It only happened when the battery wasn't fully charged. Eventually things settled down.

The reason I don't like the 2.6.24 kernel is that it tends to cause file corruption when coming out of suspend on EEEPCs.

One other correction with the article: KDE is mostly 3.5.10, with some programs still at the earlier version (probably because the programs in question didn't change).
