Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” Installer Enters Alpha with Linux 4.12 Support

Debian developer Cyril Brulebois was pleased to announce on behalf of the Debian Installer Team that the first Alpha release of the installer for the Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” operating system is out and it’s ready for public testing if you want to install and use this development release on your personal computer. The big changes since Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” are support for the Linux 4.12 kernel series, the implementation of a sshd user to support privilege separation for recent OpenSSH releases, the ability for partman-auto-raid to use a logical volume as /boot when the “partman-auto-lvm/no_boot=” option is set as “true.”
