Debian 6 review

Filed under
Linux

Debian 6.0, aka Debian “Squeeze”, is the latest stable release of Debian. It was made available for download earlier this month. In Debian country, a major release of this sort is a once-in-a-very-long-time event, unlike other distributions where it happens at least twice a year. This article provides a detailed review of Debian Squeeze.

Installation: The Debian Installer is one of the most versatile you are ever going to find on any Linux distribution. It has an ncurses mode, a text-based mode, and a fully graphical installation mode. And there are Live media installation images, regular installation images, and netinst images. A netinst image offers the opportunity to install a system over the network. If you are going to install from a Live ISO image, the boot menu methods available to you are show in the image below.

When I chose the “Live 686″ option, I encountered the error shown in the image below at some point during installation.
