Status of Debian Edu 12 (bookworm)

(development started in August 2021)



See the Bookworm manual installation chapter how to edit kernel command line parameters.

Installation media

Debian Edu ISOs for 64-bit and very old 32-bit PCs (both AMD and Intel processors) are available from the usual Debian places.
/!\ Avoid using i386 for systems with Workstation profile; see 1037301 (also concerning the docs).

Download using HTTPS

The -edu- netinst iso image can be used for installation from CD/DVD and USB flash drives and is available for two Debian architectures: amd64 (64-bit) or i386 (32-bit). As the name implies, Internet access is required for the installation.

The -edu- BD images are 7.5 GB (amd64) / 6.0 GB (i386) large and can be used for installation of amd64 or i386 machines, also without access to the Internet. Like the netinst image it can be installed on USB flash drives or disk media of sufficient size.

Verify the downloaded image file

Detailed instructions for verifying these images are part of the Debian-CD FAQ.

Known problems that need to be fixed

Known problems that can be fixed locally

If using thin clients, users should turn off compositing to avoid display artefacts (if using MATE or Xfce); see 1008602. (For MATE, this has been resolved in Debian 12.2, see 1050126).
