Debian GNU/Linux 8.0 Screencast and Screenshots


Debian GNU/Linux 8.0 Screencast



Quote:
After almost 24 months of constant development the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 8 (code name "Jessie"), which will be supported for the next 5 years thanks to the combined work of the Debian Security team and of the Debian Long Term Support team.

"Jessie" ships with a new default init system, systemd. The systemd suite provides many exciting features such as faster boot times, cgroups for services, and the possibility of isolating part of the services. The sysvinit init system is still available in "Jessie".

The UEFI ("Unified Extensible Firmware Interface") support introduced in "Wheezy" has also been greatly improved in Jessie. This includes workarounds for many known firmware bugs, support for UEFI on 32-bit systems, and support for 64-bit kernels with 32-bit UEFI firmware (with the latter being included only on our amd64/i386 "multi-arch" installation media).

Since the previous release, members of the Debian project have also made important improvements to our supporting services. One of these is a browsable view of all source code shipped in Debian currently available at sources.debian.net. Of course, with over 20,000 source packages, it can be quite daunting to locate the right file. Therefore, we are also very pleased to present Debian Code Search, available at codesearch.debian.net. Both services are complemented by a completely rewritten and more reponsive package tracking system.

Why Cinnamon? And why the "install sid" launcher on the desktop, what's that about? Is the Jessie base is too old to handle Cinnamon? Thanks for the video regardless. I'm not too thrilled with Debian right now so I'm just a little biased, lol.

Cinamon on Ubuntu

I'm just using Cinamon. Simple, easy, smart, not too bloated. I don't care for the bigtime Gnomes and KDEs. Just too much. I like a system that does what I want without too much fancy pants.

In Jessie, the "Debian desktop environment" option offers a choice for; GNOME, Cinnamon, KDE, XFCE, MATE and LXDE (default will install GNOME).

As for the sid installer, as far I know, Live images aren't supposed to be "official" (though very useful).
Jeremy should have used the default (and official) one ... but hey ... who cares? Debian just works anyway.

Cool From one netinst( down the rabbit's hole[noparse]:)[/noparse]

I definitely have too much time to kill these days...

...tho who would want to crack trough so many potential layers? (It's offline so not an offer to try! )

Plus, I can crash four systems at once.

The LQ screencasts are always done with distribution defaults for consistency.

I just can't warm up to Gnome 3. Cinnamon is OK, but not much better, IMO. MATE... as a long time Gnome 2.x user, I loved it but I kept getting strange lockups, etc.

Eventually settled on XFCE and am very happy. I like things very simple.

I'm having problems in PCLinuxOS with both MATE and Xfce, it would seem the Gnome/systemd cabal is slowly creepy in, updates are bringing unwanted bugs and GUI changes (certain apps are taking on the look of Gnome 3 in Xfce). I realize things and the world moves on, but I hate having things shoved down my throat against my will. gtk2 is getting polluted. After the last round of updates, icons in the menu (not the Desktop) have taken on a reddish hue, same with window title bars, what should be blue or black are now red. I put this down to gtk3 creep. Oddly enough, I also have Devuan Xfce installed, but it's not turning in to a dog's breakfast like PCLinuxOS.

The problems in PCLinuxOS MATE started with some updates (LLVM, etc), so I bare metal installed their 2016.07 Xfce community edition over it, and just to confirm this, I immediately did all the updates (before doing anything else) and the same GUI distortions happened, definitively proving that PCLinuxOS' gtk2/3 support and packages are broken.

So I left the PCLinuxOS Xfce install intact and I'm using Devuan now as my default workhorse OS, I'm waiting to see if they fix the mess they created, if not, it's time to say goodbye to PCLinuxOS.

Debian; always capable of what you want, even if you rely on others like "Devuan..."

I was having lockups, etc. with MATE when it was early in its first release... so I expected some bugs. But the freezing up was so unpredictable it drove me crazy. Sometimes it would last 2-3sec, other times it last 15-20, before things would get back to normal. I've never had a problem with XFCE across several distributions (Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Fedora.. ). Xubuntu runs a little slower and seems a bit more bloated than the other 3, but really that's just because it's a *buntu.. it was still reliable for me.

There's a light version of *buntus (if they still make it) and a *free* one Trisquel. https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.en.html
