Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 Squeeze

leave a comment »

Many of you were probably excited that the Debian project released Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 Squeeze this past weekend.  You probably weren’t as psyched as I was, however, since Sunday was my birthday (turned 32, again, for the 10th time, for those curious).  I felt like the Debian project had planned the event perfectly!

So, like many others, this past weekend I upgrade my computer operating system from Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 Lenny to Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 Squeeze.
And, it’s awesome!
I don’t really have much more to say about that. I mean, it’s the same rock-solid, dependable, Free operating system I was running a week ago, just a bit shinier and newer, and, oddly, faster, which is cool.  The upgrade process, my first upgrade since switching to Debian back in 2009, was childishly simple.  Trivial, really.

I took about 1 minute to replace all mention of “lenny” in my /etc/apt/sources.list to “squeeze”, first.  Then I ran a sudo apt-get update, then sudo apt-get upgrade, which took quite a while, but I was able to go about surfing and chatting on IRC while that was going on.  Once that was done I installed the new kernel, sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64.  Then, finally, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.   (for detailed instructions click here)

Then everything just worked.  Piece of cake!

Anyway, I made a couple of Squeezy wallpapers to share:

like fluxbox…
After all the fuss with other WMs, I am back using Fluxbox to get my work done.
Nothing else is as comfortable and efficient for me.
The light, flowery theme didn’t last long though…
Here you have my current desktop, and, the co0l wallpaper I made for it.
For those that might be tiring of the constant screenshotness, I have made smaller thumbnails,
but, srsly, you should check these shots out…

enjoy:

there is no spoon... gnu public license - matrix wallpaper

I have removed all traces of fvwm, icewm, jwm, afterstep, Ion3, and mwm from my system.
I am keeping twm on as a light alternative, or something…

based on my own photo manipulations of my own photos.
The right side image is actually from a photo of a building in New London, CT.
The lower left is me, coming to haunt you all for forgetting my birthday…
(the trees are in Bluff Point, Groton, CT, the grave stone from a cemetery in Waterford, IIRC).
Created with the GIMP, of course…

Now, I really better get back to my work…
