The8Woodcutter Gives Debian 12 (BookWorm) A Test Drive!

June 26, 2023 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

Hello! So my laptop battery died midway I was typing a message :| That was unhappy but what IS happy! Is DEBIAN 12 BookWorm!!!

I won't lie, I had a bit of beef with Debian 11 and how old and crusty it was getting so this new stuff is amaze. The most aggravating thing about Debian 11 was that apt-key became deprecated and the buggers never bothered to make a work around, a script, nothing, and the actual work around for adding a key and repository was a nightmare for the longest time until eventually all the online tutorials that I frequent for quick handy copying of commands have been updated to reflect the gpg-dearmor | > < cat | sudo tee crap. Now I am not against cli stuff by any means but I found it rather crap to have to try and remember this huge piped command. As well if you set your global umask to 0027 or harsher, yea, there's more you have to do too and it kept stumping me accidentally.

I am really hoping that BookWorm has finally fixed this, and I haven't encountered it yet. One last complaint (or two) is that since I often use LAMP servers and even often use Laravel composer version 1.x.x was a massive pain, then furthermore everything (I'll admit it, quickly) moved along to PHP 8 + whereas Debian 11 was STILL using composer 1.x.x and php7.4. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy for Debian 12 because I truly think Debian is likely the very best Linux distribution that exists. Bubuntu no dice.

So I started a Debian 12 VM, mind you a waaaaaay overpowered one with 10 CPU cores and 7GB of RAM lul, my computer be burly, but I have so far seriously enjoyed it. I am using intel gpu drivers atm because OpenSUSE update and I forgot to add a switch so it trashed my nvidia dkms, or whatever, but it's shiny, XFCE4 is JUST as it's expected. BUT BUT BUT THE BEST PART:

I INSTALLED APACHE2, FAIL2BAN, SSHD_CONFIG SETTINGS, LARAVEL 10.^, NPM, NODEJS, COMPOSER, MARIADB WITHOUT A SINGLE ERROR!!! Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOO much Debian!!!!!!!!!
