Re: Giving up on Debian

I had not considered downgrading.  I had been using sid in the past -- now, if I can find those install disks...

I understand your pain, Gary. I use Debian since 1997 (and Iris Unix
in 1995-1996). I never used windows. I never used other Linux either.
Many years I was using sid, regulary using testing, rarely using

Now I have to use oldstable, because stretch simply breaks basic
things. I do get answers from user list, but no solutions, so I had to
downgrade. I am not that far yet to consider another distro, but I
will never use stretch.

Did you try to downgrade?

You can get answers via the user list: debian-user@lists.debian.org.
