About La Salle Debain

This is a weblog I'm keeping about my work on Debian and any other useful Debian related info I come across. It is not meant to compete with other news sources like Debian Weekly News or Debian Planet. Mostly it is just a way for me to classify and remember all the random bits of information that I have floating around me. I thought maybe by using a blog it could be of some use to others too. Btw. "I" refers to Jaldhar H. Vyas, Debian developer for over 5 years. If you want to know more about me, my home page is here.

The name? Debain is a very common misspelling of Debian and la salle de bains means bathroom in French.

If you have a comment to make on something you read here, feel free to write to me at

You can get an rss 0.91 feed of any page in the blog by appending ?flav=rss to the end of the URL.

An Article About Debian By sayV H. rahdlaJ

Remember the article I wrote on Debian in the May issue of Linuxworld Magazine? (It's on pages 44-47.) Well, Uri Scharf has translated it into Hebrew.

We're Pregnant

I know you're thinking shouldn't I have said my wife is pregnant? Well I'm claiming the product is a derived not an aggregate work.

Presentation at MHVLUG

This evening I gave a talk to the Mid-Hudson Valley Linux Users Group (MHVLUG) in Poughkeepsie, New York about what's going on in Debian these days and what's coming up in sarge. I did a live demo of the new installer which suitably impressed the audience and made the requisite quota of nerdy jokes which, um, probably didn't. But they laughed so I choose to keep my self-reputation as a comedic genius intact. There were a lot of good, interesting questions from the audience then we had a small keysigning followed by dinner and lively conversation at a local restaurant. Poughkeepsie is a couple of hours away by train from Jersey City so I didn't get back home until 1:30am but I had a really great time. Thanks to Joe Appuzo and the LUG members for inviting me.
