Debian 8.0 "Jessie"

Most of my systems, desktops and virtual machines have been running Debian 8.x since shortly after it was released, only my home server lingered on on version 7.0. Earlier this month I took the plunge and completed the ext3 to ext4 upgrade that I never completed on the root filesystem and then upgraded the box from 7.x to 8.x.

There were a few surprises. I knew that Apache 2.4 has different configuration, so was expecting that and didn't have any problems. I had forgotten that the DNLA media server I use was removed from Jessie and there were a few other small related changes.

I eventually figured out that rsnapshot has changed it's flags slightly, so I needed to make some SSH changes to compensate and the best way to get Mediatomb running turned out to be running it in a Debian 7.x chroot...

All my systems are now fully upgraded and all is well.
