Upgraded to Debian 8

Page content

Didn’t touch OS on my travel netbook/home workstation for more than a year (mostly because didn’t use them much) but it’s time now. Google services don’t work with an outdated browser.

Netbook upgrade went smoothly, tested for few days, looks ok so far. Main concern was a possibility of some changes in Awesome window manager internals. It would suck since I doubt I have enough patience to re-configure Awesome from scratch. But, luckily, it just works.

Managed to screw up bootloader on the workstation. Here are instructions how to deal with LVM + luks + broken grub.

P.S. (Unrelated) It looks like Vkontakte managed to fix integration with Twitter - noticed a reference to my previous post on the wall. Was broken for more than a half of a year.
