Did my first install of Debian the other day (Sunday, to be precise.
Yes, there /are/ demented people who work weekends also :( ). It was
quite straightforward, except that it doesn't support root RAID at
install, which is a bit of a pain.
It took about 1 hour (not including downloading time) to upgrade to
the latest utilities, configure the system and install kernel 2.4.0
(had to do that from www.kernel.org, since there doesn't seem to be a
.deb of 2.4.0 around anywhere). Installed RAID on the other
partitions after 2.4.0 came up. Still looking for a builtin utility
which configures networking a la netconf in Redhat (and no, I don't
want to use linuxconf!).
System's running beautifully. I think I like Debian. Goodbye, RPM
compatibility problems and rpmfind.net pains. Now I just have to fix
my CD drive at home and install there.
Supreet, I'm keeping these CD's -- you'll have to call your
AK-47-toting friends if you want them back :) I'll pay for the blanks
if you want to make a new set, and also for your next meal (and
Dushy's) at Dilli Haat if we meet there.
More news when something comes up.
