Upgrade to Debian Squeeze

We are currently preparing the upgrade to Debian 6 Squeeze. First test nodes are available on request.


Squeeze comes with KDE Version 4 instead of KDE 3. This brings a lot of changes and we are still struggeling to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Anyhow many parts of your KDE 3 settings will not be applicable any more or not properly converted and simply ignored. Some may also hinder the proper functioning of the KDE 4 version and have to be deleted.

We recommend at least 2 GB RAM for running KDE4. For older PCs with less RAM and no RAM extension possibilities we recommend using the alternative desktop environment XFCE that is also provided.
