comment System freeze on “setting up alsa”
I have the same problem. I am trying to boot antiX-1.3.2 386 on an old computer. The system freezes right before or after printing Setting up alsa. Any clue?

comment Different look and feel for gnome classic in Debian 7 and Debian 8
Thanks for your answer. Actually I would like to keep the look and feel when switching to a new version. In any case, I do not want to be forced to adopt a new look and feel, I would like to choose between keeping the old one and switching to a new one. The possibility to choose has always been one reason I use Linux. So I do not see why it should be difficult to keep the old desktop alongside the new ones.

comment Change default monitor screen in GRUB 2
Another problem I have is that I cannot install a new OS: e.g. the Debian installation disk also starts on the laptop screen and so I am stuck with the operating systems that are already installed (which were installed before the screen broke). If I find a solution I will post it.

comment Gnome 3.14.2 not working on Debian
I thought about both options. Since it is a fresh install in which I picked some standard packages, I doubt that it is an incorrect install, but maybe I will try to re-install in a few days, just to be sure. It could also be a bug, since jessie has been released only a few days ago. I will keep upgrading and see if there is some bug fix that solves the problem. In the mean time I have followed some online documentation on how to set the greeter background image but I had not success: the greeter background is black.

comment Change default monitor screen in GRUB 2
I have the same problem. Both linux and windows use the external monitor but I cannot see the grub menu. Did you find a solution in the mean time?

comment Different look and feel for gnome classic in Debian 7 and Debian 8
Anyway, what you see above is the following. The upper screenshot is from a wheezy system that's been upgraded to jessie. This is what I see when I log in using gnome-classic, and the look and feel was fine to me. The lower screenshot is from a newly installed jessie system. Again, this is what I see when I log in using gnome-classic. My goal was to have the upper look and feel (wheezy + gnome-classic) in jessie. But I will try out mate too.

The gnome-classic was close enough to what I liked in wheezy, but apparently this has been changed in jessie. Many thanks, I will try out mate.

comment Gnome 3.14.2 not working on Debian
I have installed Debian 8 and I can boot but the gdm3 log in screen won't show any background. Once logged in, the background image is displayed correctly. The gnome menus seem to be broken though: there is a lot of white space on the right of each menu entry.

comment Can apt-get upgrade perform a dist-upgrade from one version of debian stable to the next?
I ended up downgrading all packages using apt-show-versions as you suggested. At a certain point I had no kernel so I would not have been able to boot again. With some luck I could reinstall the old kernel and the system is back to wheezy now. It seems to work. In parallel I am trying out jessie and plan to move to it once I have understood how to configure it properly.
