    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    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 place to get help on a Debian problem (after reading docs) or to just chat and chill is #debian on irc.oftc.net.

    Many of the Debian Planet staff live there so pop by and say hello.

    Debian Planet also has its own channel on the same network called #debianplanet.

    Kernel Traffic #99
    Submitted by agl on Tuesday, December 26, 2000 – 19:32
    It’s not really DebianPlanet material – but no one else seems to be posting too much so I thought I’d point people at the excellent Kernel Traffic.

    KT is a human edited digest of the linux-kernel list. If you’ve never come across it before it’s certainly worth a look. Issue #99 has just been released.

    There are also a number of other ‘Kernel Cousins’ – KT like publications which cover other lists. See here for a list (of note is KC Debian Hurd). Check it out.


    The night before christmas eve…
    Submitted by ressu on Saturday, December 23, 2000 – 21:15
    Many of the staff are on vacation or otherwise unavailable to write up, so it’s been pretty quiet on DebianPlanet too.there hasn’t been much to report either, the Debian installer is already working chrooted, but it still won’t make it to woody. and there has been discussion about the spam on Debian lists.the site has been upgrading all the time, some of you might have noticed a slight bug in the user authentication and for those who are wondering, i’m working on a forumzilla version of DebianPlanet.

    State of the Woody Address
    Submitted by agl on Tuesday, December 19, 2000 – 18:43
    Anthony Towns has posted a “State of the Woody” mail
    to debian-devel-announce. It discusses a number of things and puts a provisional June 2001 date on the release of Woody. Definately worth a read.

    DWN and installer status
    Submitted by ressu on Wednesday, December 13, 2000 – 21:28
    OK, today a new issue of DWN and Debian-installer news was sent. The hilights that affect most of us were, the release of 2.2r2, package pools, the apt that can handle RPM’s and perl trouble.

    The Debian-installer newsletter was renamed to be bi-weekly, since last newsletter there has been a new release of the demo and the installer can now download packages.

    Submitted by agl on Wednesday, December 13, 2000 – 19:20
    NewsForge has a review of the Plextor PlexWriter 121032A CD-RW. I’ve seen a lot of these and Windows users are singing their praises. It’s great to see this cool technology working under Linux.

    You can get Debianplanet to your palm
    Submitted by ressu on Sunday, December 10, 2000 – 10:37
    i just fixed up palm version of debianplanet, it’s based on palm mod for PHP-Nuke. i also made a small script to download a new copy and upload it to your palm.

    Upgrade successful
    Submitted by robster on Saturday, December 09, 2000 – 14:33
    We’ve just successfully upgraded to a new version of PHP-Nuke. So if you experianced any slight abnormailities they are now resolved. You will have to relogin as the cookies will need to be updated. The only things absent from the upgrade are the enhanced sidebars and the Debian Help sidebar is misbehaving. These are being resolved as we speak. Any bugs please mail us. Thanks.
