Re: Linux Magazin coverage



The 0.93R6 story is sadly still in many old Linuxers minds. That is the 
ashes they were talking about. Then there are the many hurdles and unexpected
problems for an old Sysadmin.
to get running on Debian. I just installed Debian at an old Slackware site
and the first things that happened was that ftp.debian.org was rejecting
connections with "ftpd -a option not supported".. Comment from the sysadmin:
Yeah that is Debian. I was puzzled too but my Fuller mirror saved the day.
Something like that must be solved ASAP. We need to have a crisis intervention
team that can react immediately to broken vital functionality.
