I have to say, the Debian team (Or should I say the GNU community!) have out done themselves, Debians latest offering is by far the most user friendly version i’ve used.
After using the latest testing release for about 5 hours last night, I’m now downloading the latest stable release (v4r3) to setup a LAMP server.
As for the title “development makes jack a dull boy??” per haps it should have read “development makes Linux more user friendly!”
Well I figure I must be time for my yearly encounter with Debian Linux, it seems every year I devote an afternoon to installing and working with Debian.
I’ve downloaded the weekly testing DVD set, now it’s time to fire it up on a virtual machine, and dive back into manually configuring hardware! Wohooooo!
I’m sure this will tickle someone out there, after weeks of messing with the webcam on me eee on Ubuntu, i found it was disabled in the BIOS!!!!
Once i enabled it, Skype picked it up straight away!
I have to say, i certainly don’t remember disabling it, but hey ho it works!
(If anyone else has problems with the webcam, you also need to disable “desktop effects”
Now, what else can i play with…….
