I have a FreeNAS server. When I try to copy files over to it from my Debian system I get the following error message:
Fedora vs Debian Package Releases
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 29, 2007
I'm wondering Fedora's packages compared to Debian Sid's. Are they both updated regularly? I know that Fedora 7 testing presently has packages which are head-to-head with Sid's, but what about after the final release? Will Fedora 7's packages continue to be updated as quickly, or will they slow down, or even cease?

Help either fedora or debian?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2012
Yet I had been using ubuntu since last two years.
Now I have a copy of debian 6 to install. But as I saw most people are learning red hat for getting job and also I found that there are only red hat courses available to learn.
I am bit confused that is it better to install debian now considering career view ? I mean can I get paid with a job if I master myself in debian ?
Please tell me the status of debian in linux world. I had been searching on internet the same topic but cant reached to any conclusion.
Please help me.
Debian vs. Red Hat in terms of contribution to FOSS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 15, 2013
Let me begin by stating outright that this thread has nothing to do with performance or which package manager works better or has better repositories. This is a thread comparing the contributions of arguably the two largest or most significant Linux distros of all time. It is not intended to be a flame war, merely a discussion of what each distribution has(and continues to) contribute to the world of FOSS. So who has done more for the world of free and open source software, Debian or Red Hat(Fedora included)?
Gentoo vs. Debian

I was wondering what your thoughts are of Gentoo vs. Debian? I'm thinking more along the lines of a production environment.
Debian on HyperV: Serious clock drift
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 15, 2010
I've been running Debian (Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 2.6.26-2-686) on MS Hyper-V for over a year now without any clock issues. In the past few weeks I've started seeing serious clock drift on the Linux guests (1s per min). I've not been able to isolate the root cause for the drift and based upon other people's experience with Host/Guest clocks I'm surprised I hadn't had problems earlier.
In testing, I have a base Debian image which does not see the drift. If I install the adjtimex package the drift begins and there doesn't seem to be any way to fix it (removing adjtimex doesn't help, rebooting with notsc or clock=pit doesn't help).
Has anyone seen similar issues and found a resolution?
Debian AMD64 or i386 ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 2, 2008
Need some help to clarify something about Core 2 Duo processors and debian distro.
Assuming i'm installing debian on a pc using a Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 4300 1.8 Ghz processor.
What are the pro and cons using an AMD64 distro instead of an i386 ?
Could it be better for application like blender for example ?

Installation... Windows vs Ubuntu/Debian/Knoppix/Distro of your choice.

OK, in a way I sometimes feel like I am the Windows defender here. It had been a good few years since I installed XP from scratch, I think I have been spoilt by all the modern Linux distros I have installed lately... OH MY GOD! What a painful experience!
The desktop is your basic Compaq desktop machine, a P4 EVO D510, a common as muck machine. Did XP auto-detect everything? DID IT EVER!!!!
It booted into 640x480 4 bit colour, with no Ethernet driver, no sound driver, and clearly no video driver either. Thankfully USB worked so I was able to get the Ethernet driver to it that way. After enjoying the Compaq/HP site in 4 bit colour and getting the right drivers for the rest I wanted to install IIS, was it easy?
HELL NO! Why? Because I had given back the Windows XP install CD to the Helpdesk team. And it expects the disc, no “apt-get install IIS” or anything quite as elegant.
This is frustrating!
How come not many people sing praises about how easy some of latest Linux dis
[SOLVED] Debian vs Arch linux for my needs on a laptop advice requested
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2012
Hello LQ users, I just have a couple of questions.
I recently got a new laptop, and I'm finally intent on running GNU/Linux properly on it, (I've mainly used virtual machines in the past).
My friend recommended Arch Linux to me, and I say that it's intriguing, yet I only have one main issue with it: pacman.
I'm just used to apt-get, and to me, it is much more user friendly, as well as more powerful (in terms of number of commands/options, from a first glance anyway).
So I've had experience with Fedora, Ubuntu and Kubuntu (as well as Xubuntu). I've decided that most likely I'll try GNOME 3, thus my reasoning for instead of Arch, maybe trying a more Debian-based derivative. So now I'm thinking, I don't need a Debian based derivative, maybe I should just try Debian itself!
I'm mainly wondering which one to pick, Debian or Arch. I'm fine with suggestions, but I'd rather distros that are at least fairly well known, and not the really obscure ones.
I want to be able to try
