Debian 9 (Stretch)

Debian 9 is being released on the 17th of June, can we haz templatez big_smile

Seems that 128MB is starting to scrape on the limits of Debian, especially the 128 miniKVMs and Japan LES (storage wise). A good minimal template might fix this. Native PHP 7.0 and LetsEncrypt would be nice smile.

Re: Debian 9 (Stretch)

I dont offer KVM in japan?

128mb is already beyond the limit, we only get away with it because you don't run your own kernel on OpenVZ.

I will create a template on release, I promise nothing in terms of stability.

Re: Debian 9 (Stretch)

Referring to little happy cloud, since the 128mb version has to contain kernel in RAM as well.

Japan only has 1GB storage on the other hand so that is the bottleneck.

Just tested in a VM, seems to run fine on 128MB RAM once install has been completed using 256MB.

Re: Debian 9 (Stretch)

Ok so I just upgraded from wheezy -> jessie -> stretch. 332MB storage use, with 693MB free (Japan). Only complaint from the system is from libc about the old kernel.

Just noticed that the templates for newer OS versions are only 64 bit, is the difference between 32 bit and 64 bit no longer that big or is it simply no longer worth supporting?

It hasn't been supported for awhile.  There are relatively few advantages to use a 32 bit kernel when you are using less than a few GB anyhow.

A few percent lower memory consumption tongue

Re: Debian 9 (Stretch)

Which is fine when you are talking about real memory on a physical unit, but in this case anything you save is probably used on the host in emulation smile
