Phoronix: Debian Lenny 5.0 Released
Nearly two years after the introduction of Debian 4.0 "Etch", Debian has reached the version 5.0 milestone. Debian 5.0 "Lenny" was released yesterday on Valentine's Day after it previously had faced a few delays...
Yes it can
what debian have to offer against opensuse fedora or ubuntu except that debian is very stable?
The default kernel is just too old - combine it with 2.6.28 and you will have much more fun Btw. it is really nice that the official 64 bit plugin went into it, just
apt-get install sun-java6-plugin
even with AMD64 and it should work (when non-free sources are enabled).
with modules-assistant (an awesome tool btw) and a kernel packaging guide
you too can run debian with 2.6.28 :-P
I have got already a repository with that. And I prefer dkms over m-a because dkms works automatically.
@kano I had heard of that but haven't tried it... so you are saying it works even for kernels i build myself?
Of course, when you use make-kpkg then it is triggered on install, otherwise on boot. My 3d driver scripts use dkms for nvidia + fglrx automatically - even on pure Debian.
