Journal biglig2's Journal: Potato? woody? Syd? Hamm?

Well, the time comes to decide if it is better to hack at getting the hardware to work, or to upgrade to a different distribution. Well, upgrade to woody, despite the subject line.

Tricky. Maybe it is best to bite the bullet and go for it now. After all, I may need to upgrade all sorts of packages before I am thru.

Also rdesktop, the native Linux TS client is only in woody and it is one of my desired apps that I reckon I can get going simply enough.

Part of the problem with Debian is that Thomas Hood uses nice shiny AC kernels, so I kinda need to keep up if I am to depend on his configuration notes.

Oh heck, go for it!

download thomas' sources.list; # out SID; apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade.
