2021-08-16 Debian 11 (codename bullseye) Official Release – Welcome bookworm

My hat is off to the Debian team who officially released bullseye to the masses on Saturday. This is a major release, and is also a major improvement over the past, extremely stable Debian releases. After all of my use this last year of bullseye in testing, I know it will be just as stable.

The release is dead. Long live the release!

Since bullseye is now released, the next testing stage has been unfrozen and is available. As JCCHOME Linux is a spin on Debian testing, all installs will now update to this new testing repository.

JCCHOME Linux is a rolling release – do this now

JCCHOME Linux is a rolling release, so there is only one easy step to use this new bookworm repository:

sudo apt update

E: Repository ‘http://deb.debian.org/debian testing InRelease’ changed its ‘Codename’ value from ‘bullseye’ to ‘bookworm’
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
Do you want to accept these changes and continue updating from this repository? [y/N]

Y

Just press Y and ENTER to allow the change of repository

This is all you have to do. The same kernels are used and are continually updated as released by the good folks at kernel.org.

We are all now bookworms!

Future plans for the next 3 months

My plans include adding the following:

  • arm64 support – This includes Raspberry pi 4 and other SBC boards being natively supported, assuming proper firmware can be found and will work
  • SAMBA Active Directory Domain Server Automation
  • SAMBA Active Directory Member Server Automation

In the future, I may also try to automate somewhat iRedMail, but this is already pretty complete
