@BROY It answers the question you should have been asking rather than the one you did.

comment How to install Debian packages via internet instead of from a CD?
Note that "Stretch" is the code name for the next release, currently in testing and in no way, shape or form production ready as the current stable release is barely a few months old. If you're unfamiliar with debian as your question suggests, I highly recommend sticking with Jessie for now.

@Marco You may want to look at wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Apt as well, these are actually better maintained than the backports version...

comment not Booting a newly linux kernel inux-2.6.32.65.tar problem
More to the point, can you still boot to a different, hopefully working kernel? If so, your system might be salvageable. If not, I recommend a reinstall and hope /home stays intact.

How did you install the kernel? Also, since when is a 2.6 kernel "new" ?

comment How to find out if a system uses SysV, Upstart or Systemd initsystem
@val0x00ff Also possibly useful to know is the fact that all three of the init systems you know can and will honor standard LSB init.d scripts if they're found...

comment What is the difference between Halt and Shutdown commands?
@JdeBP I'd equate them to, say, the sendmail command at this point -- Like with MTAs, it doesn't actually matter what init system you use because all of them will recognize both shutdown and halt as such.

@JdeBP Back when I wrote this systemd was out for less than a year and I'd never even heard of it, mind. :)

comment Is my webcam driver being used to hack my computer?
At a guess, the "keys" it found are whatever control buttons that particular brand of webcam comes with, so Xorg registers them as a keyboard-type interface so it'll know how to handle the buttonpress events.

You allow traffic to a http/https port, but not the return traffic.
