Debian 6.0 Squeeze - First impressions

Posted 08-05-2011 at 08:13 PM by DJ Shaji

I have been using Fedora since time immortal, but what with the stupid python installer and the ~1GB minimum RAM requirement, I was unable to use it any further. I mean, the installer refuses to install on my system. So I looked around for another Linux system, and perhaps the biggest name after (or before?) Red Hat is Debian.

0.Install samba
for samba is not installed in fedora 14 default option.
Code:
yum install samba
and don't forget to start smb service.

1.Disable SELinux
SELinux is a security extension of Fedora that should provide extended security. In my opinion you don't need it to configure a secure system, and it usually causes more problems than advantages (think of it after you have done a week of trouble-shooting because some service wasn't working as...
