Status of Debian Edu "Buster"

(development started in July 2017)


Debian Edu ISOs for 64-bit PCs (both AMD and Intel processors) are available from the usual Debian places. (Replace amd64 with i386 if you need an ISO for 32-bit PCs.)

Weekly builds using d-i from buster:

Daily builds using d-i from unstable:

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