Re: wifi failed after hibernate
This was extensively discussed in
I agree. For a system that undergoes daily change Sid breaks very rarely.
And on an off topic note..... My main desktop started life as Woody,
moved to Sarge, then to Etch, and has been running Sid for the last
year. I also used apt-pinning to run a combination of Sarge, Etch and
Sid for a while. This has happened while I've been learning Debian too
so the poor machine has been abused a lot.
IMO, it's quite a tribute to the quality and stability of Debian that it
has survived all the upgrades and abuse. I couldn't imagine what a
borked-up mess a Windows system would be if someone tried doing to it
what I've done to my Debian desktop for the last few years. None of my
Windows installs lasted more than 6 to 9 months without having to be
rebuilt with what I put my systems through.
I agree there should be an explicit debconf message, because wifi
connection can be a serious issue for roaming laptops. And yet it's
also true we use to deal with unstable/experimental, and should be
prepared to lookup the Debian News.gz patiently when something
broke, e.g. by installing apt-listchanges....while I admit i use to wait
for breaking ;) after all, unstable doesn't break things very often.
It's actually quite good (*big thx to the maintainers*)
But be careful with expeimental.
It was a kind of border case, i think.
