    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    General feedback should be sent to staff@debianplanet.org

    The Debian Sandwich Part I
    Submitted by robster on Monday, April 02, 2001 – 21:32
    What? I hear you all cry. Well let me explain myself, the thing that makes Debian better than sliced bread is the two programs which make Debian, well, Debian. These are dpkg and apt.

    Two lines with ISDN with MPPP
    Submitted by robster on Monday, April 02, 2001 – 21:30
    Yes, two lines with ISDN are quite useful and cheap in some places,
    like here.. i decided to set it up a while back but dropped it because
    i had to edit so many files. This time around i had to re-edit the files
    to test our new dial-in configuration. And here it is.

    Submitted by robster on Monday, April 02, 2001 – 21:26

    Webmin is back!
    Submitted by ressu on Sunday, April 01, 2001 – 12:54
    Yesterdays dinstall brought many Debian users a happy surprise, webmin is back.
    Webmin was removed from archives a while back due to maintainer conflicts. Now it’s back, and appears to have quite a few features. It allows adding and removing particular modules. Hopefully this version sticks. =)
