Debian Reference
Chapter 2 - Debian fundamentals

This chapter provides fundamental information on the Debian system for non-developers. For authoritative information, see:

  • Debian Policy Manual

  • Debian Developer's Reference

  • Debian New Maintainers' Guide

listed under References, Section 15.1.

If you are looking for less detailed "how-to" explanations, jump directly to Debian package management, Chapter 6 or other relevant chapters.

This chapter is based on documents taken from the "Debian FAQ", greatly reorganized to allow the ordinary Debian system administrator to get started.
