Thread: Optimize Debian packages for your system

    Optimize Debian packages for your system

    Since the arrival of the very first versions of Gentoo, some people have announced that "Debian is good, but that's not optimized for (distribution in which you run make all the time)". And this is wrong, you are free to recompile software you use on Debian, using the apt system. Downloading a tarball, uncompressing it, running configure scripts and make install, is an easy task for every Linux user, but this is not adapted for the Debian package management system. Stow was a way which worked without too much effort, but compiled programs were not really integrated in the apt dependancies. The ultimate solution is to use apt-build to recompile a software already packaged for Debian.

    Hmm, I don't have an accent either. Is that uncommon?

    Both of myparents were raised here in Georgia, and I have no accent. I think I can attribute that to the area I grew up in though (alot of domestic migrants in Duluth.)

    No, but it isn't pronounced Deebian or 'DBN' either :P .

    Some people say I talk with a southern accent, but it's because of the 'Carolinaisms' that my mom used, I'm sure .

    So how is it pronounced??

    Funny story, a couple of weeks ago, Snct and I got together for breakfast on one of his many trips through Atlanta, and we were talking. I said something about Debian, and he looked at me like he had no clue what I said when I pronounced Deb Ian.... :duck:

    Yes, and you pronounced it Deebian (I thought you'd said DBN... Some sort of database app, or something?! :P ) . You said because you're a Slack guy, you'd naturally mispronounce Debian. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it :mrgreen: .
