Code:
chroot /path/to/new/root

Now you can chroot smile.gif

Thread Starter 


deciding at last to jump to wheezy. Mainly for iOS 6 mounting and Netflix. Wish me luck!

EDIT--

not sure I'm going to do that tonight though. But I definitely am going for wheezy by at least sometime this weekend.

Wheezy is rock solid at this point with the freeze and all. Should be classified stable in a couple months. The only annoying thing though is that occasionally you get a "MD5Sum mismatch" or "Hash Sum mismatch" error when running apt-get update as they're mucking with the repos. Tends to be fixed within 15 minutes most times though.

I'm actually thinking about moving to Sid. I'd kinda like to try a Windows VM with VGA passthrough as well. I don't think many people have tried that on Debian though.

Regarding the poll subject, I use LightDM.

I can't even think of a distro that doesn't use it if they come with a DE.

Really? Any distro that ships KDE by default will come with KDM. And distro that ships GNOME by default will likely ship GDM.
post #1066 of 4043
I'm pretty sure the Mate version of LMDE used GDM by default which would fall in line with Plan9's theory.

Well KDM = KDE Display Manager, and GDM = Gnome Display Manager. They're both part of the respective projects. So you'd expect any distro which favours one DE over the other to ship that display manager

There's also XDM which some of the more WM/DE agnostic distros (eg SuSE) ship.
post #1068 of 4043
I use LightDM too, with the GTK greeter of course, but then again, Xfce doesn't have its own display manager. LightDM works nicely with Xfce.

To be fair, all the login mangers work ok with all the desktop environments and all the login managers basically work the same. So I really don't get why we need half a dozen different ones. But I guess that's the linux way

I agree. Sometimes having the option to make something your own way is good, and sometimes it gets abused such as having all these different programs that all do the same basic function.

The Linux way is severely abused.
