    WoodyYes… Debian 3.0 (aka woody) has been released a mere one year, 11 months and 4 days after 2.2 (aka potato). Get your fixes here:

    And yes… the new testing is called sarge. Hopefully this will finally end any confusion – sid will always be unstable.

    Update: The jigdo files can be found here.
    And: If you install discover, read-edid, and mdetect before installing xserver-xfree86, the debconf script will be able to detect your graphics card, monitor and mouse. This means you only have to answer one or two questions about your keyboard, and X practically configures itself.

    Robot101’s description is pretty much what I do for remot upgrades, except.

    I log in twice, becoming root both times.

    I upgrade ssh:

        apt-get install ssh

    I log in a third time, and become root, to prove that ssh is still accepting connections, and all’s well.

    I upgrade screen with apt-get.

    I run screen, and then do the upgrade in the screen session (using your favourite upgrade method).

    after I finish, I make sure I can still log in before logging out from all the root sessions.

    That’s it. Paranoia is your friend.

    BTW It can also be useful to have a spare login with it’s home on /var rather than /home, so you can log in remotely and them unmount /home.
