Is Sid working for you?

Postby autocrosser on Sun Jan 23, 2011 11:33 pm

Just wondering how many people are using Sid sources & if there are any problems?

No problem here. It is a good idea to install apt-listbugs and update with SMXI

Same here, i'm running sid on LMDE amd64 since december and there were no major issues. Probably in april, when squeeze comes out there will be some problems but i'm sure they'll be fixable.

short warning though. while testing is frozen, sid of course isn't but it kind of is too. Seems people ar ediscouraged to make any major changes to unstable in that period so that potential fixes for testing can be tested better. That is, for example, why sid still has the 2.6.32 kernel....
So if your sid experience is LMDE-only consider that since the lmde release sid hasn't quite "been it itself".
Apart from that of course lots of people are running sid pure and have been for years but I do expect they had a stepping stone or two in that time. I personally only tried sid on my spare partition and not very long (2 monhts of sidux and maybe one month of pure debian. - didn't end because of problems though - just got curious and decided to play with other things on that partition)
