Re: Concerning testing



The company I work for installs debian servers (gateway, firewall, mail web etc)

I would strongly recommend stable

Most of what you need is on stable. If you need anything extra you could probably get it from backports.

Sit down and have a look at what you need

I wrote a howto and posted it to the list on building such a box

I havent finished it yet but have a look if you like

Hi,

Although I am an old Linux user, I have never used debian, and I am a bit confused about the various versions.

I would like to install testing (sarge) on a small business server (gateway, firewall, mail, web, ftp etc). I know that I should install stable, but somehow I don't want to. So I have some questions.

Do things break often with testing?
Will I have problems with security updates?
Is testing on a business server an awfully idea, or just not recommended.

I am asking those with debian experience, since I cannot judge only by what I am reading on the official site.

Thanks.
