Status of Debian Edu "Bullseye"

(development started in July 2019)


Main server installation is broken due to recent Samba changes. (Setting up LDAP depends on a working Samba NT4-style domain, but the Debian Edu specific smb.conf is no longer usable.)

{i} At first boot of a combined server or a separate LTSP server the image for diskless workstation support is generated. This will take quite some time.

Instead of the default xfce desktop environment, mate, gnome, lxde, lxqt, cinnamon or kde can be used by editing the kernel desktop parameter (default: desktop=xfce). See the Bullseye manual installation chapter how to edit kernel command line parameters.

Debian Edu ISOs for 64-bit and 32-bit PCs (both AMD and Intel processors) are available from the usual Debian places.

Download using http

(Replace amd64 with i386 if an image is needed for very old 32-bit PCs.)

Weekly builds using d-i from buster:

Daily iso-cd builds using d-i from unstable (iso-bd images are not built daily):

Download using rsync

Also recommended to update an already existing image.

Verify the downloaded image file

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