Sorry. :oops:

EDIT: Starting another point here so as not to have 2 posts in a row...
What I find really curious are all those people who have obviously just installed Debian a few days ago on very recent hardware, but actually installed Wheezy and then are wondering why it's not running the latest Intel video card. I wonder how that happens. I mean, I'd understand installing Wheezy after realising that Jessie is too buggy, and I'd understand this maybe in server use. OTOH, I can't imagine that beginners who can't troubleshoot simple video card issues really know or care about the systemd debate. It just makes no sense to me, as all the default downloads link to Jessie images.

Thank you, dasein!

Just made an account to post this. Instead of having a productive morning, I spent 3 hours reading those posts. Lots of facepalms and giggles. I am entertained.

BTW: Is it das.ein or da.sein?

I always thought he was some sort of philosophy major and read it as "Dasein".

So after dasein being 5 years on this forum I am the first to ask about the deeper meaning of his name? Maybe I am wrong, and he doesn't understand a word of german.

Anyway, 2 hours later, and I am still entertained by this thread. It's a slow saturday, and I enjoy myself while reading this. Unfortunately I more or less reached the end.

Fun fact: I also ran into a FrankenDebian, when I freshly moved from Mint to LMDE and just copy-pasta the android-build-from-source-instructions including various apt-add-repository invocations. Only excuse: I did this many times before and had my brain switched off. Also those ppa adding finishes "without errors". Lol.

Well, I noticed early and just reinstalled. Without wasting your time on this very forum. Its so obvious, too.

Edit: I didn't install a vanilla Debian on any desktop box for ages. Just on servers. But spending so much time here makes me want to.

Ask? Yes.

A native German speaker correctly sussed it out when I first joined. And a (I think) native Italian speaker recently guessed wrong.

But thanatos_incarnate is right (at least about the meaning, if not my academic training).

So yeah, da-sein (existence/presence), not das-ein (the one).

Glad I could keep you entertained. :D

And if it saves a few motivated newbies from borking their system, then I am doubly pleased.
