Debian Jessie notes

If you have a system that is booting into X11 and you want to boot into the text mode, none of the grub options seem to work.

A simple work-around is to edit /etc/X11/default-display-manager and change it from /usr/sbin/gdm3 to /bin/true. Reboot and you should have a text console.

Most of the old systemv init scripts work. You can start/stop applications by running them from /etc/init.d.

Samba shares has changed. In order to get a no passwd shares on your local samba server you need to add the following lines:
security = user
map to guest = Bad User

Make sure you have no user in your smbpasswd database ie, pdbedit -L should show no contents.

more later.
