Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Debian stable or testing? apt-get or yum? etc.

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Just what are all the (different) better ways of installing Debian? (The default Debian installer may be wonderfully cross platform, but it's absurd lack of good hardware detection on x86 pretty much sucks.) Is there any kind of list or review of alternative installers somewhere?

Libranet sounds interesting, but there don't seem to be any docs available on the web, and it's not really clear what you end up with once you're installed. AKA, can you easily update from the official Debian package repositories, or are you locked into Libranet somehow?

There's more helpful Debian install info in the Jan. 2004 Best Configuration in Debian for Openacs Development thread.
