Out of curiosity, what packages are people running on their debian plugs?  It's really simple to do a package listing of installed packages:

Code:
dpkg -l |grep '^ii' > InstalledPackages.txt

Debian-Lenny on a 8gb SD card. There are a couple that I compiled an installed manually, not on this list.. Like Transmission.. apt-get got me version 1.22?!? I downloaded 1.76 and compiled/installed it myself.. Wink

That's precisely why I opted for Debian Squeeze rather than Lenny, as the packages in Lenny are so out of date...

Squeeze was labeled as a non stable version, so I thought it was a bad idea.. heh.. I've heard horror stories of the early versions of Ubuntu.. Heck, Ubuntu releases aren't even stable in some ways.. So I was a bit gun shy.. I do like my apps to be up to current versions tho..

I've not had too many problems, and because package counts are generally very low on Shevaplug compared to full server and desktop installations of Debian/Ubuntu, the chances of package problems is greatly reduced too.

I do a full update every month, and don't think I have ever encountered a problem.   Running old versions of packages comes with their own problems too.   Transmission web interface failed to work at all on Opera for me, on the Lenny "stable" distro, but works fine in the "unstable"...
