According to Debian, the release-critical bug count of their testing distribution is now better than the Wheezy relase I now use… Is it time to apt-get dist-upgrade? I’ve already done that a couple of times in a virtual machine with no problems. It will likely work for me in a real machine.
UPDATE I did it. I upgraded to Jessie. There were a few messages on the screen but I didn’t even write them down. The system is running smoothly and I’ve checked all my usual applications. Now to see if it will reboot. It should. I installed a Debian kernel just in case the one I have been building is somehow incompatible with Jessie.
Well, that was interesting. The Debian kernel did not boot but the one I built locally did… I’ve also found that the XFCE4 weather plugin is not working. Nope. It just needed reminding where I live. It’s prettier than ever. How about those temperatures? It surely beats the 20 degrees lower than normal that we’ve been having. I’ll take it.
Oops! On the server side I had lots of breakage. PHP was missing entirely… Several web applications don’t work or had data missing. I have backups…
