I am a ... well let's say advanced user of LINUX and have now 10 happy years of experience with DEBIAN starting from version 5 Sid until the recent 8.2 Jessie.
Before that done 6 years of system administration including a SCO UNIX Server and a couple of Windows Servers and dozens of workstations. The largest system was nearly 100 PC's, devices etc. at 3 locations with LAN and VPN's, Firewall and Phone via landline and VoIP.

I like to experiment and then share the experience. With sharing I may post silly stuff and get corrected - the way to learn something from anybody.

Have fun, insight and maybe share your knowledge with me.

Debian 8.5 64bit on ACER E5-573

Posted 08-14-2016 at 07:00 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

This is an update on last years laptop with Debian 8.5 in 64bit with KDE
------------------------------------------------------------------------

As google has stopped support for the 32 bit version of chrome I have updated the known laptop with Debian 8.5. Just did a complete re-install from CD-ROM. Easier than to fumble with the 32bit and try to bring it to 64bit. At the same time we'll see what is working now.
