Re: A debian-based distro for the New
Quoting Steve Hunger of beta progeny...
"Getting Progeny Debian Beta 3. For speed and convenience, you can
download the CD and boot disk(s) images from same location as before from
http://archive.progeny.com/images/ If you have successfully installed
>from beta 2 and decide not to install again, be sure to update/upgrade
the packages as many have changed. Be sure to read the release notes for
information on this release of the beta. (We still need the installer
tested as several problems have been fixed) The release notes are
available at http://archive.progeny.com/RELNOTES.beta3
You can also upgrade your system to get the beta 3 enhancements
>from the archive site. To do this, add the following path to your
deb http://archive.progeny.com progeny main contrib non-free
Then from the command line run:
apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade"
'nuff said :)
