well ive tried debian stable like 2 weeks ago which was debian 504 which was pretty much depricated being 2.6.26 kernel (2 years old and counting) no ext4 support so i tried debian testing but like when i tried gentoo whenever i use a weekly release cd i get random errors. like when i tried debian testing some one broke parted as it couldnt part a sun disklabel it just messed it up, made all the parts like 1/2 the size indicated so id end up from supposed to being like 100mb /boot, 2gb swap, then like 34gb for /. (36gb drive) end up being 100mb 14gb free space, 14gb /, 1gb free space, 1gb swap. and as i had debain stable working just fine, it was specific to testing obviously. so the question is anyone have any suggestions on how to get a weekly release cd working?
edit: its for my newish sun ultra60 2x360mhz ultrasparc II's with 4mbl2 per, and 1796mb of ram with dual 36gb scsi drives, dual ethernet nic's fiber optic card, usb, sound, video card (not the one that takes up both slots) so i was planning on using it on a dailyish basis so i want to be able to run programs newer than 2 years old
