sunrat posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxI'll post this in Debian updates but here too as it may have wider interest. Gotta love a stable distro with 5 years support!
OK, as you all know, I run pure Debian Wheezy. I got sick and tired of having the audio be flaky so I did the following to get rid of Pulse Audio: in a true TTY command line as root: apt-get update apt-get remove pulse audio apt-get alsa base apt-get autoremove reboot apt-get upgrade logged out of root and also in command line: alsamixer and set my settings. Lots more available control now on the Mixer in the system tray area! Yea!!!! And no more stupid Pulse Audio tricks!!
Yes I know there's an "about to be released" thread, but this news deserves a thread all to itself. Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" is released! It's been 27 months since the last release so this is a momentous occasion. More info - http://www.debian.org/News/2013/20130504 They managed to keep the install images down to CD size (~648MB) too, quite an achievement. I'm downloading the LXDE version for my EeePC right now. Will report back....
Debian Wheezy will be released with a small change. The default desktop environment will be Xfce instead of the long time Gnome choice. All you Gnome 3.x bashers relax a minute. It may be more a choice brought on by Debian's insistence on sticking with a single CD iso. It seems Gnome has gotten to big to fit on the first installation CD. Of course, speculation remains that there were other more subjective reasons for ditching Gnome as the default DE. It will still be available via the repos, along with KDE, LXDE, etc. Read more about it in this Phoronix article --> http://www.phoronix.c
