Ubuntu fonts are better than Debian. Why?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 6, 2007
I just installed Debian Etch.
I've been a Ubuntu user for quite a while and wanted to check out the mothership distro from which Ubuntu sprang.
Long story short, the biggest difference I noticed was that the default Debian fonts didn't seem to be nearly as nice as with Ubuntu. They were often small and quite blocky (not a sub-pixel rendering problem, I don't believe - CRT).
I looked at all of the conf files I could think of, but couldn't really see a difference for fonts between Debian and Ubuntu.
What is it that makes them look better in Ubuntu?!?
I love Etch other than that. I hope you can help me figure it out.
[SOLVED] [Debian] Why is Debian looking for a deleted LV on boot?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 17, 2013
I've decided to resize my LVM LV volumes and reduce my PV to free up some space for an experimental installation of Windows XP.
I used Parted Magic to firstly do an lvresize/lvreduce to shrink my root LV, and that went fine.
I then went to do a pvreduce but that errored out saying there were extents already allocated -- so I figure that it was the swap LV -- named "swap_1".
So I did an lvremove then lvcreate and called the new swap space it "swaparea". All good, and the pvreduce then worked OK. I mounted my local disk and updated the fstab to point to the new swap LV. Saved and rebooted.
It booted fine, but I noticed that during the boot, Debian complained about being unable to find the LV swap_1.
So, what I'm curious about is why is Debian looking for swap_1 when I deleted it and made sure fstab reflected that? If I rename it back to swap_1, it doesn't complain, but is there another location that Debian stores LV information aside from fstab?

Have I offended Debian?why will such thing happen?

I have compiled kernel in Debian more than 20 times,without success.
If this 20 times can be divided into 3 periods,then in first period I can't boot the system with the new compiled kernel,because I have forget to compile initrd into kernel;the second period is that I can boot the system and enter it successful,but without selecting the correct net-adapter module to compile.And the third one is that I have solved the problem mentioned above,the new compiled kernel is compact with initrd and the correct net-adapter module,But the main problem is I can't enter the system.
And the error message is
/dev/ptyS0: no such file or directory
/dev/ptyS1: no such file or directory
So there is no login prompt.But I have checked this problem for many times more than 10 times,and I can't find any incorrection in my configuration.Every thing is done as I have done in the first and second period.
Perhaps I have not choose the correct Virtual Terminal Module.Who can tell me in what item t

Why headphones work with Ubuntu, Fedora and Scientific Linux but not Debian Wheezy?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 28, 2013
I am trying to figure out why my headphones work with Ubuntu 13.04, Fedora 18 and Scientific Linux 6.4 but not Debian Wheezy? With the others all sound is fully functional out of the box.
Basic speaker sound in Debian works although it is a little tinny.
I am trying to install on a late 2011 Apple Intel iMac 27 inch model. For every other distro other than Debian the headphones work outside the box. I would prefer to run Debian if possible.
Is it something in the Kernel? Would copying the .config from Ubuntu and using it to compile a new Debian Kernel work?
Why do people say Ubuntu is slower than Debian?

It sounds like there's more to it than just Unity because this claim is made about all Ubuntu derivatives. What makes Ubuntu so different?
why fedora render faster than debian based?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 19, 2011
with kdenlive..., i dont know why but fedora 15 render 200% faster than debian based (in this case elementary os or ubuntu). I.E.:
HD 720 4000k WEBM takes (in fedora) 20 secs
HD 720 4000k WEBM takes (in debian based) 10 or 15 mins
why would one want to use debian over ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 25, 2010
to my understanding (correct me if im wrong please), ubuntu is debian with added packages and other additions/modifications.
so, unless you dont like the way ubuntu is set up (in terms of packages/additions/modifications made/installed), why else would you use debian? Is debian more stable/secure/fast etc?
I know some distros like slackware for example, is extremely stable compared to other distros. but ubuntu and debian seem to just be the same. I guess i thought debian more for power users, who want more control.
Why Ubuntu And Not Debian
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 9, 2010
I have seen some Distro like Linux Mint, Crunch Bang and among others are base on Ubuntu and not Debian. Since Ubuntu is Debian base why other Distro does not use Debian? Anyone want to comment on that?
