Wheezy 7.5 is out

And my ISO archive is out of date again. *sigh*

Luckily, apt-mirror has reduced the time required to upgrade all of my machines significantly ;-)

    Why do you use sudo with lsb_release?

    (and you should make it easier to comment here)

    • What can I do to make it easier? Thanks for making the effort!

      I dunno about the lsb_release sudo thing. It seems like something I’d need to elevate my privs for. Feels like it might probe around on my system for things it wants to know but I wouldn’t normally tell it.

        Sorry for the delay.
        For lsb_release it’s not necessary to use sudo (or run it as root).

        About the comments section, I had an account in WordPress.com (that I didn’t use) but it was also necessary to create an account here to comment (so it was necessary 2 accounts).
        Couldn’t this process be simplified or be possible to use another auth service/system? (like Google, or a validated e-mail address, for example).

        Thanks
