Debian 10 (buster) a quick look on a simple workstation

two dogs

I use debian (my blog) and with version ten out called buster i offered the monkey houses stretch* pc to upgrade it via apt dist-upgrade   Three hours later i am typing this on itin debian ten.

Being a simple pc opposed to a server not too may hiccups

Those being

  • virtualbox [oracle crap]’ has no buster repository
  • minissdp wanted attention – not that i knew what minissdp does i ignored it
  • /etc/defaults/networking was updated [prompted] i kept my file
  • /etc/ssh/ssh_config [prompted] i kept my file

kde works from a brief exploration

Some issues which i discovered and may be user [me] issues

  • ipv6 by default [no ipv4]  until i edited my /etc/network/interfaces file which looks like its been through an exorcism since i have being doing a lot of iov6 work recently.
  • bluetooth sound is controlled via the sounds app in kde on the applications tab so codecs works,
  • cups/ipp needs some help

It took half an hour to download and 2 and a bit hours to extract but this also during dinner in the monkey house so some prompts might have been ignored while the tribe ate its bananas.

Being a SIMPLE pc everything worked opposed to server changes so as a first look on a basic pc no issues.

I have client tls 1.3 support from openssl  so tle 1.3 seems to be finally here.
