2.5 Why does the official stable released CD-ROM contain symlinks for `frozen' and `unstable'? I thought this CD contains just `stable'!
Official Debian CD images indeed contain symlinks like:
/dists/frozen -> sarge/
/dists/stable -> sarge/
/dists/testing -> sarge/
/dists/unstable -> sarge/
so that they work when your sources.list has an entry like
deb cdrom:[<name as on cd label>]/ unstable main [...]
The fact these symlinks are present does not mean the image is
`unstable' or `testing' or anything. Read the CD label in
/.disk/info to find out which Debian version it contains. This
information is also present in
/README.txt on the CD.
to find out what the current `stable' and `testing' releases are.
