That's good news Head_on_a_Stick, I suspected there was not any update before closing finally. I'll see the Monday morning.^pvsagea little quickly for celebration don't you think? Jessie stable still has not reached the ninth month of pregnancy LOL.
This thread is just a story (rant) about how my update in Debian testing (currently jessie) failed (again). I'll add some of my thoughts also, so that if some debian package maintainer happens to read this, he'll know kind of problems they create unnecessarily.
So here goes the story:
Yesterday I finally collected the necessary willpower to start a system update.
I have a question: Which OS is more stable: Kubuntu 13.10 or Debian Testing (Jessie)?
What about long-supported Kubutu. Is it better than short-supported ones, regarding safety and stability?
I am not so sure, what kind of distribution I should choose.
i changed Debian7 xfce 'testing' to 'Jessie' on my thinkpad laptop in order to get e17 windows manager working. but after the change, Debian 7 xfce taskbar, menu, firefox launch icon on desktop have all stopped working.
not sure what should i do to make it working again, any ideas?
If you want GIMP, then the version in Testing is 2.8.10, which isn't much different from Stable(2.8.2)If it is the latest GIMP you want (2.9) then you need to compile it from source. I have tried to do this with Stable, with no success.
