If you are going to be downloading everything, you should consider using bit torrent:

Ok I will use bittorrent to download iso images. Kindly visit the link provided by you related to amd64 there you will find only three iso images. I have used squeeze and it contained 8 dvd's so I think that wheezy must have 10 installation dvd's.

Are you aware that only the first disk is required to do most installations?

It takes a long time to build all the iso's. Wait a day and check back again.

I didn't know where else to post this. I installed Debian 7 this morning as a guest in VirtualBox 4.2.12. When it installed it added the 4.1.18 guest additions. I have no idea what was done but out of the literally hundreds of Linux guests I've installed over the years, this is the first guest where everything works as it should including 3D for Gnome 3, video without switching to x11 video output, screenshots inside the guest itself. The developers should contact Oracle and explain to them how to get guest additions to work properly.

great job.
Those that can, do. Those that can't, tell us how to.

"After many months of constant development, the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 7.0. This new version of Debian includes various interesting features such as multiarch support, several specific tools to deploy private clouds, an improved installer, and a complete set of multimedia codecs and front-ends which remove the need for third-party repositories. Multiarch support, one of the main release goals for Wheezy, will allow Debian users to install packages from multiple architectures on the same machine. This means that you can now, for the first time, install both 32- and 64-bit software on the same machine and have all the relevant dependencies correctly resolved, automatically."

Beyond happiness! 8)

I don't agree that wheezy has nice features even though I love debian.

When compared to opensuse related to package management debian package management is inferior. At any circumstances suse will never throw the system into broken state while on debian while installing packages after some time synaptic or any other package manager will warn that there are broken dependencies.

apt package management is good but its GUI frontend's must be more sophisticated.

I have requested forum people and developers of debian several times but there is no positive response.

Rupesh.

If one upgrades from Squeeze, do any packages from the squeeze backports repository have to be downgraded to versions from Squeeze (or removed), or can one just "#" the backport repositories and then upgrade as described in the install notes for Wheezy upgrade from Squeeze?

The installation notes just say to avoid "unofficial" backport versions, but I though the Squeeze-backports were official.

Congrats to all the good folks who worked on this!
Been using Wheezy since last summer on one machine and knew it would be a great new Stable. Recently installed it on another machine and couldn't be happier with it.
