Happy to report that my node is now running Debian, after just a couple hiccups in copying over configuration files and what not. Note to self: yes, really, for nodes not connected to actual radios, /dev/Zap/pseudo doesn't work anymore. Similarly, renaming zaptel.conf is a thing. Otherwise, dropping in my previous configs worked fine. So far, anyhow. Nice to be back on Debian anyway. Oh, and one other nice thingy. Debian has ezstream and related already packaged, so apt-get installs them very nicely.
