Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 updated

The Debian project is pleased to announce the first update of its stable
distribution Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (codename etch). This update mainly
adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with
a few adjustment to serious problems. The first update also corrects a
few important issues that have been noticed too late in the release

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian
GNU/Linux 4.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is
no need to throw away 4.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update against after an installation, in order to incorporate those late

Those who frequently install updates from won't have
to update many packages and most updates from are
included in this update.

New CD and DVD images containing updated packages and the regular
installation media accompanied with the package archive respectively
will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the
aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to
one of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of
mirrors is available at:


Debian-Installer Update

To propagate updated Linux kernel packages to the Debian installer it
has been updated. The new binary interface causes the old netboot and
floppy images to stop working and thus will be rebuilt and distributed
from the regular locations soon. Several USB CD drives that were
previously not detected are now supported. Other changes include an
updated mirror list, a correction for gksu and improved translations.

Sono tristissimo!!!!! Mi

Sono tristissimo!!!!!
Mi hanno tolto vdrift! È un gioco di guida di automobili un po' pesante graficamente per le mie macchine ma che dà molta soddisfazione!
Basta pensare al nome (il "drifting" è la guida in derapata).

Ma meglio così in fondo, con le licenze bisogna essere precisi a mio avviso.

Se lo si vuole giocare, bisonga scaricarselo dal sourceforge.
