Debian insight
 
Hey boys and girls! I decided to do a new thread instead for it!

By the way...I'm installing (netinstall) the newest version of Debian on a test pc at work right now....

Grey, eg, what's your impressions....?

So far very stable and quick. It "feels" much leaner than Ububtu.

Netinst..sweet, although I would like more choice WRT package installation, rather than just "desktop" and so on.

None of the problems I encountered with fstab or xorg that I had with others.

Not being able to sudo threw me because I'm old and forgot all about 'su' til evilghost reminded me. :p

Haven't had time to tweak yet, I'll stay up with this thread though later.

Overall thumbs up so far.

See my signature and avatar :)

I find it to of quality equal and greater than Ubuntu; Ubuntu has too many nagging bugs and issues.

Of course, it's been said, if you want to be on the cutting edge prepare to bleed. Ubuntu makes me bleed.

Thanks here also eg!

Whole different experience using debian. Gotta tweak some more.

I GNU you would like it. I find it has all the positives experiences of Ubuntu but with a more polished professional atmosphere and less of the idiosyncratic annoyances of Ubuntu.

Don't get me wrong, Ubuntu is great, and I loved it as a transitional OS, but I like Debian much better.

Lol, yes I do. i drew conclusions fro trying to install it a couple weeks ago on an older chipset and having difficulty. Now I feel I may have found my distro, probably even load up some games next week.

Know anyone wants to buy a copy of Vista? :)

I'm not going there...lol.

This is here to stay. Even copied the man-pages to desktop so I can fry my brain more quickly. :)

Quick question on the atime patch..

My current /etc/fstab
Code:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>  <type>  <options>      <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc          proc    defaults        0      0
/dev/sda1      /              ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0      1
/dev/sda9      /home          ext3    defaults        0      2
/dev/sda8      /tmp            ext3    defaults        0      2
/dev/sda5      /usr            ext3    defaults        0      2
/dev/sda6      /var            ext3    defaults        0      2
/dev/sda7      none            swap    sw              0      0
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom0  udf,iso9660 user,noauto    0      0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom1  udf,iso9660 user,noauto    0      0

Would this be a correct modification?

Code:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>  <type>  <options>      <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc          proc    defaults        0      0
/dev/sda1      /              ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro,noatime,nodiratime 0      1

Thanks in Advance!
