I switched to Debian Lenny Beta 2 which is on its way to become the next stable Debian release and Debian Stable is known to be rock solid for stability. Yet somehow I'm not impressed..

I sometimes take weekends off for exploring some other things besides what I usually do (these websites etc.), often discovering new interests. It is almost always related in some way to some software. I mean what else? If it's astronomy then it's astronomy software, if it's programming (something I scratch so many times and yet never really deeply penetrate) then it's IDEs and stuff.. Today it's 3D. I'm thinking of getting and playing with Blender.

the problem is that when i finish dist-upgrade from stable to testing. it halt my computer beacause i notice that the mouse or keyboard or the computer light is not flashing. i have look into the ps, top and the lpci command, which i found nothing or may be i have looked into the wrong place

I was planning on using it next time i installed debian, but found this bug:
