|I was wondering if some of debianplanet community were running libranet on their desktops. I only put Debian Potato on servers (I’m a sysadmin), but on my desktop I’m running Mandrake 8.1 at the moment. Potato hasn’t enough recent packages for me, while I don’t have the time for fixing Woody when it breaks (I run woody on a testing machine).
I had high hopes for progeny and was hoping that Progeny 2.0 would be less beta than the 1.0 version. I guess that won’t happen …
So I was wondering about libranet. Someone here uses it? How up to date is it? How long does it take to have a libranet package for the latest software (kde2.2, gnome 1.4, etc.)?
Or is it just an easier to install potato/woody hybrid and for updates we should look at the regular Debian testing/unstable branche (with all the inevitable broken packages from time to time?).
I’m downloading their iso to have a look when I’ll find the time, but it would be nice to share your experiences. DanielS: My desktops at both home and work are sid; I find it’s a) more up-to-date and b) less buggy than woody, in general. If bugs do slip through, it’s not hard to downgrade, through multiple deb lines in your apt config, or wait a couple of days for the maintainer to fix it.
