4.0r4 Etch and Half

Come dicevo in questo post, sono state rilasciate le immagini ISO della release 4.0r4 di Debian, è possibile quindi da poco accedere ai 21 CD (Ventuno!) e ai CD di installazione da rete netinst (debian-40r4etchnhalf-i386-netinst.iso 144M) e business card (debian-40r4-i386-businesscard.iso 33M), nonché ai 4 DVD (compreso uno di update), è possibile inoltre scaricare i files Bittorrent CD e DVD da dare in pasto a deluge o azureus.

Per quanto mi riguarda sto facendo ho fatto l’installazione in VirtualBox partendo dal CD netinst.

Questo una parte dell’annuncio:

July 26th, 2008

The Debian project is pleased to announce the fourth update of its stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (codename etch). In addition to correcting several security problems and a few serious defects in the stable release, for the first time in Debian’s history an update for a stable distrubtion also adds support for newer hardware by giving users the option to install newer drivers.

Existing Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 installation CDs and DVDs can continue to be used to install this update. After installation, upgrading via an up-to-date Debian mirror will cause any out of date packages to be updated. However, users of the network-console installation method are strongly encouraged to update their media, see the “Debian Installer” portion of this announcement for more information.

Those who install updates frequently from won’t have to update many packages and most updates from are included in this update.

New CD and DVD images containing updated packages and the regular installation media accompanied with the package archive respectively will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online should be done by directing the aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) at one of Debian’s many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:
