Updated Debian 10: 10.7 released

Filed under

The Debian project is pleased to announce the seventh update of its stable distribution Debian 10 (codename "buster"). This point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories have already been published separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 10 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old "buster" media. After installation, packages can be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror.

Those who frequently install updates from won't have to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point release.

New installation images will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading an existing installation to this revision can be achieved by pointing the package management system at one of Debian's many HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at...

Also: Debian 10.7 Released With Numerous Security Fixes

In the process...

  • FLOSSLinux: Part way through Debian CD release process - always fun to do - Debian 10.7 in process

    Working through the test suite: RattusRattus, Sledge, Isy, Schweer and I. We've been joined by somebody new - jlsantos - who has done his first test for us Smile

    A couple of changes: there's now a different automatic partitioning layout. /boot has been resized to ~500MB - to allow for more than one kernel but also the other initramfs files. The filesystem size allocated for a swap partition is now 1GB by default.

Post-release debian notes for 10.7 ISO

  • FLOSSLinux: Lots further forwards - but moving slowly through live CD testing

    All of the testing of the normal Debian images has gone through the steps we lay out. We're now working on the Debian live CDs which take significantly longer per image.

    Looks like a long night until Steve is ready to sign the release and begin the final transfer - however much we try to minimise it, it's a 12-15 hour process and my thanks go to RattusRattus and Steve for the final stages of a very long day.

And the last few architectures are getting done - Debian 10.7

  • And the last few architectures are getting done - Debian 10.7 edging ever closer

    And we're through the live images as far as we can reasonably go. There remain a couple of MIPS architectures to build and IBM s390x - we have no hardware to test these.

    It's now 23:30 UTC - so that's 12 1/2 hours since we started and Sledge has another couple of hours to wait before the last images can be signed and the image release can be pushed.

Debian 10.7 Released. What’s New and Download, Upgrade Steps

  • Debian 10.7 Released. What’s New and Download, Upgrade Steps

    The Debian project announced the release of Debian 10.7 “Buster”. In this summary post, we take a look at what’s new and Download, Upgrade Steps of Debian 10.7.

    Debian is the most stable and truly GNU/Linux distribution out there today. It’s one of the oldest Linux operating systems and popular for its stable nature. Debian project lifecycle is conservative in terms of adopting new features and changes immediately upon release. This is the main reason it is stable and preferred for most critical deployments for enterprises and average users.

Debian 10.7 Run Through

    In this video, we are looking at Debian 10.7.

  • Debian 10.7

    Today we are looking at Debian 10.7 with the XFCE desktop environment. It comes with Linux Kernel 4.19, XFCE 4.12, and uses about 400MB of ram when idling. I have big respect for Debian, as it is the big daddy of Linux Distros. Enjoy!

Fearful Huawei finds comfort in Deepin Linux on laptops

Whenever people discuss the problems Huawei is facing due to the so-called Trump ban the conversation rarely strays from the smartphone discussion and yet Huawei is more than just a smartphone company. Their product line is every bit as extensive as Samsung’s. They don’t just make expensive phones like the P40 Pro, they also make Televisions and even dabble in the laptop game as well. In fact, the stats show that they actually have a very viable laptop business. Have you ever seen a Huawei laptop in real life? Me neither, I just ogle at them on YouTube.The company started marketing their MateBook series back in 2016 when they gained a meagre 2% market share. In 2020 that number has grown to about 17% of the Chinese market and the company is expected to ship about 6 million units of its popular MateBook series in 2020. The company has also said that they have seen a growth of about 250% compared to 2018. Not a bad side business if you ask me. Read more
