Debian Lenny 5.0.3 Updated

| Comments

The Debian project just announced the third update for its stable distribution “lenny” 5.0.3. Those installing regular updates from security.debian.org will notice just a few new updates (base-files for the version change to 5.0.3, heartbeat, perl, openssl, linux-image, svn, etc). Also the installer has been updated to incorporate the new kernels released with this point release, adding support for new network hardware, and to fix a segfault early in the boot process of installations for the S/390 architecture.

“The Debian project is pleased to announce the third update of its stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (codename lenny). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away 5.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won’t have to update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org are included in this update.

New CD and DVD images containing updated packages and the regular installation media accompanied with the package archive respectively will be available soon at the regular locations.”
