[Koha] Koha System Administrators Special Interest Section

As Koha continues to grow in popularity it seems reasonable to assume
there may be a corresponding increase in the number of Koha system
administrators, specifically separate from developers. At some point if
there is interest in starting a mailing list or a wiki section for
system administrators maybe we should discuss it.

The following email discussing updates in Debian that I received on a
different mailing list is one example of information that might be of
interest to such a group.

    Trying to upgrade an older debian squeeze install, aptitude tries very

    I'm rather curious if it would've died earlier with a 32-bit kernel.


Have you tried the upgrade with apt-get?  It's (again) the recommended
package manager for Debian (as opposed to aptitude in Lenny)[1]:


Although the |aptitude| command comes with rich features such as its
enhanced package resolver, this complexity has caused (or may still
causes) some regressions such as Bug #411123
<http://bugs.debian.org/411123>, Bug #514930
<http://bugs.debian.org/514930>, and Bug #570377
<http://bugs.debian.org/570377>. In case of doubt, please use
the |apt-get| and |apt-cache| commands over the |aptitude|command.
