debian ten new things

Debian 10 (my blog) is a fast loader even on a server and here a few things different which debian deems un-news worthy.

Its been a week or so

monitor sharing [HARDWARE] – the zoo being cheap has a monitor with three interfaces on it i(vga/dvi/hdmi) n the old version debian would seed control to the thing on the hdmi interface rather than the dvi port on no interaction being debian has a dvi interface, the new version remains on the hardware screen – not a problem since the hdmi interface can be chosen from the screens menu as required.

If the zoo had billions to spend on another monitor it would be a very low priority and probably be an ex-display/return one as well.  The monitor remains turned off 99% of the time anyhow – emergency use case.

Usually we remote into it

tls

tls 1.3  (part of openssl) works and things we use can use tls 1.3, quays tests work and confirm it in browser client and .server

amavis

/usr/sbin/amavis-services msg-forwarder
/usr/sbin/amavis-services childproc-minder
/usr/sbin/amavis-services snmp-responder

Since amavis keeps mum on changes these seem to be new binaries i hairy eyeballed.

zombie process

opendmarc

is a bit of a mystery the zoo’s  only non working component – think postfix got grandfathered and if your not doing sockets how it used to so nothing happens

Milters ….

fail2ban

The new config is baffling, our old config works  so damn it i will use that.

rkhunter

Debian reports large memory blobs now and the usual hidden /etc/.java directory returns and deleting it means it gets recreated regardless.  You have cron mail to read every day.

No nasty surprises a week in.

Postfix

Opendmarc [milter] is a no go but everything else appears to work.

tube recycle those 1’s and 0’s

Ipv4 & Ipv6

I had to add an timeout option to systemd to make a list of open ports to load since we use a miix of static and dynamic ipv6 it seems pretty stable.  Iov4 seems to also work although the boot process still whines i have a bad interfaces file entry but wont tell me where or why.

Patches have been light so far.   The ghostscript patch stopped my desktop (i386)  from seizing in x several times a day.

Apart from our isp losing ipv6 for five minutes a day (everything also does) it does feel like a debian problem as the router is not debian based it soon returns so i am not blaming them for that.

I am not regretting this upgrade.
