Debian

Journal thinkninja's Journal: Toy Story

So this is debian.

I've installed Woody and am now updating to Sid, and for the first time in seconds I find my self wishing for broadband.

Updating some packages is a necessity in my case as this version of xfree86 doesn't work with my card/monitor. So I'm stuck in VGA with Lynx2.8.4rel.1 (from 2001). On the plus side I have 725mb of free memory for a change.

Oddly enough I can't find a 2.6.3 kernel source package for debian but I can for SuSE. I tried it, too, but alsa didn't work. It does with the SuSE 2.4 kernel but whatever. This will be something for me to try over the next couple of days. It doesn't matter if I fuck anything up this far into the install. I have this sneaking suspicion that by the time I'm ready there will be a 2.6.3 image anyway. Not quite as bleeding edge as Gentoo, eh? Then again the install took minutes and not hours so I won't complain.
