My only problem with debian is that the program versions are fairly old unless you use unstable and then there's no security updates. Even testing is behind Fedora in a lot of places, but Fedora doesnt have as many packages in the repos.

I use Debian testing on my laptop and Fedora 7 on my desktop.

I was worried that i would have to compile bsd compression module myself afterward for pppd, but i guess it was included in the new kernel because pppd still works with my school's VPN. Also i had to recompile ndiswrapper and vmware. I realized that it did not upgrade the kernel headers package, so ...

i used synaptic to lock them, but i must have missed something, because it upgraded them anyway.

Do you have a preferences.conf file? I read that its where the locks are held, but i dont have that file, i've just got an apt.conf

Upgrading

I'm running Debian Stable (etch), but want to upgrade to testing (Lenny).
Is there a way to (and is it wise to) keep the kernel from upgrading, but upgrade everything else that can be.

I don't want to recompile all the kernel modules that i have installed and all that jazz.

Get your wife to use linux would be the easiest solution.

That driver doesnt do journalling as far as i know, it will be treated as an ext2 filesystem.

That looks pretty nifty. I like how it has a gantt chart deal in it. Now i'm thinking of installing it for my school project groups.

Does slackware use any alternatives system like fedora and debian do? That will automatically put links like that in. And it will keep doing it unless you use that system to remove it. Also, the only reason i can think of using hardlinks is to link to a specific file to save disk space and keep chan...

PS: Just wandering, what would happen if run out of memory without having any swap? (Will the kernel handle this?) everything slows down (real choppy like), then programs that take the most ram will suddenly be killed. and if you're lucky X will completely freeze, and then if you really didnt have ...

I think that it was originally the netscape directory server... which branched into OpenLDAP and Sun's server, and FDS is based on OpenLDAP. Would you know what the o=NetscapeRoot is for? Is it used for configuration stuff or something? I've managed to get it running, and a user added. But it doesnt...

I think there is some other phones without buttons (theres an LG that comes to mind), the only thing is that this has their new multitouch screen. Thats kinda cool, but not really.
