Debian 6.0

Debian released a new version of their system. I updated it on the server that powers this blog, it took me something like one hour to do the whole system upgrade. There was only a little glitch with mysql’s my.cnf file that had an unsupported “skip-bdb” line. Everything else went fine…

The very good thing in this new release is the new kfreebsd version (available in i386 and x86_64). It brings the power of the FreeBSD kernel to the great Debian OS. If you don’t see the point, read this. To put in a nutshell: a more stable kernel with less legal issues, better vendors support and the same softwares.
