Debian wheezy: java security update, gnome-open problem workaround

After the initial rush of packages, things have slowed down a bit on the wheezy/sid front. The only notable update in the meantime has been new sun-java6-jdk 6.24 which fixes no less than 21 security bugs! You'll definitely want to pull that one and patch the numerous security holes.


Living on the bleeding edge: Debian wheezy/sid

Hello world!

I've decided to start this blog and share my experience with Debian sid/unstable, the development version of Debian GNU/Linux. It's the leading edge, but sometimes also the bleeding edge of Debian development. The stuff that enters this fast developing repository spends anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years in it before average Linux user sees it in form of a polished stable release (Debian, Ubuntu or some other Debian Pure Blend).
