For various reasons I had to setup a Debian box. Debian 5.
For building software that would be distributed in binary form and should run on any linux.
The original software that mine derives from is being built on a debian 5 system.
So, I needed one as well.
Enter: VirtualBox for Mac + Debian 5 netinstall.
So far, so good, until I actually cloned my hg repo onto the deb box, and found that the clone had two heads.
… debian uses mercurial 1.0.1 on debian 5.
that is old.
It’s a miracle that debian has heard of unicode by now.
At least I think they have heard of unicode …
gotta check that.
