Debian Lenny 5.0.5 Updated

| Comments

The Debian project just announced the fifth update for its stable distribution “lenny” 5.0.5. Those installing regular updates from security.debian.org will notice just a few new updates (base-files for the version change to 5.0.5, apache2, apt, bind9, linux-image, openssl, etc). Also the installer has been updated in this point release to correct an issue with the display of the “BIOS boot area” partitioner option when using GPT partitions and to update the list of available mirror servers for package installation.

_”The Debian project is pleased to announce the fifth 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to throw away 5.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to- date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.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.”
