comment What are the pros/cons of deb vs. rpm?
@Jeach: yes. the difference is not in the file format (very similar), or tools nowadays, but rather in past opinions and how people manage the environment surrounding both formats. I'm mostly using openSUSE and Debian nowadays

comment uwsgi install in Debian 6 (Squeeze) wants to upgrade libc6 and initscripts
Seems like a good option to consider, if all fails. It seems doable especially with uwsgi. I do like to try the testing solution first, letting the package manager doing it's job. :)

comment What distributions have rolling releases?
If every update brings new packages, including a kernel/glibc/whatever, I would call it a rolling release. If they have a fixed base system, it's not.

comment “free-as-in-speech” vs. "free-as-in-beer”
@Renjith G: Those "beer" and "speech" are just examples that people (at least in the western world) get, because they reference commonly used expressions. People associate "free speech" with freedom or "freedom of speech", and "free beer" with taking benefit of something without paying.
