That was just about time. In the last two Linux Tag events people asked us for Live-CDs and we had to explain why we don’t have any, while most other distros have. Now we finally can offer a Debian Live-CD. Still beta, but a huge improvement.
Thanks Debian Live team!
A few days ago I noticed that suspend to RAM didn’t work anymore on my T60 running sid. By chance I stumbled upon #484248 which explains that the user now has to be in the
powerdev group to be able to suspend the machine.
If I hadn’t found this information, I would have had no idea what to change to make me able to suspend my machine again.
Shouldn’t we have a central list somewhere in
/usr/share/doc explaining all the different groups and what they mean? Most of the times the package a group belongs to already explains what the meaning of this group is, but if you don’t know the package, you’re pretty much screwed.
I’m not saying, we already have too many groups, but a list with all the important groups and what they’re for would be a huge usability improvement. We can’t expect the user to find that information for every group alone.
Looking at the current number of release-critical bugs, my guess for the actual release date of Lenny is: around June 2009.
The blue lines have exactly the same angle, the greenish line marks the planned release date.
I know that’s not exactly scientific, but let’s see how close I am.
The blue graph marks by the way the number of release-critical bugs in stable.
