comment Resizing Xterm window kills Django running in it
It could be helpful, if you provided information about your kernel version (is it preemptive?), python version and django version. It also might be related to your terminal, cause reads/writes to terminal are blocking and if they last too long for some reason, the signals coming in the meantime of terminal i/o system call can be discarded with this error as described here: win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/lk/lk-4.html

comment Resizing Xterm window kills Django running in it
Never experienced that myself. Does it happen in single-threaded mode (use --nothreading, while starting python manage.py runserver)? Cause python has bugs with multithreading not handling signals, e.g. SIGINT as KeyboardInterrupt exception appropriately: stackoverflow.com/questions/1408356/…. May be there's a similar bug with SIGWINCH, sent upon terminal resize?

comment Making a usb wifi device work an a PowerPC Debian computer (iBook G4)
Shaun, I've tried like 3 or 4 wireless USB adapters for my Debian 7 and they either don't work at all or glitch badly. IIRC the only readily available modern chipset for USB wifi devices among officially supported adapters on linux is Atheros9170 and even it doesn't work for me due to wpa-supplicant failures. See the list of Ath9k devices here: wiki.debian.org/carl9170. In general, situation with Wifi USB support on Linux is grim. I believe, we need a PCI card.

comment Debian 7 resets user settings and/or forgets them
Are you sure, you actually installed Debian, not running it from LiveFlash? Cause you may experience something like that if you're booting the operating system from LiveFlash. Naturally, it doesn't save your settings - it's just for evaluation purposes. To boot from the hard drive, change the boot devices priority in BIOS (or just unplug your flash).

comment Error with gedit can't save any file
One more thing. Do those Gtk-WARNINGs prevent you from saving your file? I thought, they shouldn't be critical - usually it curses, but works.

comment Error with gedit can't save any file
Hm. Did you manually tweak your graphical environment? (installed/removed something)? Do you have Gnome 3 installed or something else?
