    (edit) Sorry, couldn’t resist. I’ve got a good friend who’s a debian dev and I troll him mercilessly about how old woody got. Now he can safely shut me up. And, my linode has always run deb 8)

  5. Sweet. I am in the middle of setting up a new image with Sarge……

  6. cacker:

    I’m just interested, what command did you use to get a list of the packages + their description?

  7. Yea “cacker”!

  8. [code]dpkg -l[/code]

  9. To list all installed packages.
    [code]dpkg -l[/code]

    you can specify a particular package with (in this case whois)
    [code]dpkg -l whois[/code]

    and you can also use wildcards
    [code]dpkg -l net*[/code]

    Edit: You just beat me Xan

  10. Beat you!

    But you win for completeness. 🙂

  11. [quote:940a9b15af=”caker”]Updated the Debian Distribution to latest stable (Sarge).

    The original 3.1r0 (June 6 release) had a security bug (the box not getting security updates). Users need to manually modify config after installation in order to receive security updates.

    The updated 3.1r0a released on [b]June 8[/b] fixes this problem.

  12. Only the CD ISOs had this problem, and I bet caker used the network install.

    Just in case anybody’s got the “bad” version, though, it’s easily fixed:

    [quote]If you have already installed a system using a 3.1r0 CD/DVD image, you do not need to reinstall. Instead, simply edit /etc/apt/sources.list, look for any lines mentioning security.debian.org, change “testing” to “stable”, and remove “# ” from the start of the line.[/quote]
