Debian 5.0 (codenamed “Lenny”) is now available for installation via the distro wizard for both i386 and x86_64.
If you’ve got a previous version of Debian installed, you can check the Debian documentation to find out how to upgrade.
Sign Up ForThe Linode Blog Today we are pleased to offer Fedora Server 24 for deployment on your Linode. The Fedora Project aims to provide the latest stable packages and approximately 13 months of support. What’s New? Fedora Server 24 installs lighter than previous versions due to the Fedora Project removing some packages they felt […]
Sign Up ForThe Linode Blog We are happy to announce that we have just pushed a new Arch image, updating it to the 2016.06.01 “release”. This image disables the predictable network interface naming convention using the suggested udev mask, so the default ethernet name is returned to eth0. If you currently rely on predictable interface […]

Since KVM’s introduction last summer, customers have created over 500,000 KVM Linodes with over 3 million launches. It’s been very stable, it’s been very fast. Our service has improved reliability and uptime […]
The Lenny image works very nicely. Thanks alot!
Will Gentoo be updated to 2008.0 any time soon too?
@Thom: that isn’t needed. Once installed, Gentoo is “stateless” – i.e. a fully updated 2007.0 install is more or less identical to a fully updated 2008.0 install. The yearly releases are just to support installs on the newest hardware (and since linodes run Xen or UML, the hardware setup doesn’t change). So 2008.0 isn’t really needed.
Thank you. I decided to cause myself some additional headache in transitioning a server from another host running Etch, to a Linode running Lenny. Rather than just using an Etch slice. I am super happy to report, that it was *easier* than my last transition. And every test I run, performance is better out of the box than my last Etch build. Kudos to the Debian team, and you guys for getting the build pushed out so quickly. Cheers.
@Mike: What you say is true, however it sucks to have to update everything straight away. Also, the upgrade process from 2007.0 requires some manual intervention to upgrade to the latest portage (upgrading portage and bash block each other).
You are perfect!
Mike: Also the 2007.0 has the whole expat update which is pretty annoying. I would expect the 2007.0 profile to be pretty outdated soon too (diffucult to update from?).
2008.0 is now available: http://linode.com/2009/03/20/gentoo-20080/
