and this one is an update i was waiting for some time (the changelog is impressive (both 39.2 and 39.1);
for me specially fixed the freezing with sandy/ivy-bridge processors (no need anymore to push in liquorix kernels), but also
  • samsung-laptop: Disable on EFI hardware, to avoid damaging it
  • nouveau: Support for newer nvidia chipsets (Closes: #690284)
  • radeon: Support for HD7000 'Southern Islands' chips

That's interesting... I've been using liquorix kernels for some time now, but I'm using the normal Debian kernel on my SolydK 64-bit (tracking SolydXK Testing). I've never noticed freezing on Debian kernels that was related to Sandy Bridge (Core i7 2760QM), but it's good that it's fixed for those who need it.

for me it's almost unusable: 5-10 min idle and the system freezes completely to a point where only hard reboot will do;
there's several (lots actually) of bugs filled in against kernel 3.2 (not only on debian but also in ubuntu/mint).
might be a combination of some specific cpus (mine is the i7-3770K) and MB (i remember reading something about that as well)

Yes, I guess it's migrated from Sid. Getting closer and closer to wheezy's release now :D .

this means almost certainly that after the freeze we will jump to 3.8.x or even 3.9.
i don't see Ben uploading another interim kernel to sid in such a short time and then migrate the one from experimental (and surely he won't upload another revision to the next stable, not if it's as close to be released as we are expecting)

Thanks stelios. Down to 39 bugs now 8-) .

I'm still slightly hesitant to upgrade until I make a more recent backup (because I got my system messed up somewhere between NVIDIA updates and kernel updates a couple of weeks ago). I wiped the USB that PartedMagic was on to put SolydX on it (which I installed yesterday), so now I have to put PartedMagic back on. Then I'll do the upgrade.

"We now have a target date of the weekend of 4th/5th May for the release. We have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for everyone. This means we are able to begin the final preparations for a release of Debian 7.0 — 'Wheezy'. The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend (e.g. a required machine crashes or d-i explodes in a giant ball of fire). Every other RC fix that does not make it in time will be r1 material. Please be sure to contact us about the RC fixes you would like included in the point release!"


https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a ... 00006.html

So, 29 bugs left ..

Great news :mrgreen: . Looking at udd, there are 21 bugs left (IIRC there were somewhere around 15 a couple of days ago). Looking at your link there are 24... Either way it's progress, and I'm looking forward to installing and using wheezy :D

Well this is only a breakage if you're running iceweasel from experimental (and I bet most of you aren't), but iceweasel 21.0 (actually it's technically a problem with the xulrunner-21.0 package) requires libc6 >=2.15, which means right now you can only use it in Sid for the time being.

Yes :? . IIRC, google-chrome-unstable also requires libc6 >=2.15. And so does the version of libreoffice that's currently in Sid (4.0.3).

Hopefully it will transition soon (but it seems like it'll be a little while).

Xfce 4.10 entered Testing :) . It's not a major update from SolydX's version, but it's worth noting. And you can't upgrade if you have the default apt pinning.

Not a major update but it brings corrections of minor bugs 8-)
Most of them are listed here: http://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce-announce/2013-May/thread.html

They did not know it was impossible so they did it.

My upgrade to kernel 3.9-1 is not going as well. When I restarted, I boot to the tty1 login screen, so the graphic interface isn't starting. I rebooted and chose the 3.2 kernel from grub and everything works fine. When I try reinstalling the new kernel and watching details I see the message Does not represent valid dkms.conf.file and No built_module_name for record # 0. I use nvidia drivers and I installed without the plymouth option.

the error you see is related to ndiswrapper

i see it also a few times along the upgrade, that is not the issue.
the issue is your nvidia graphic card drivers. you have to re-install them.
