    Are you the administrator for a computer lab or an entire school
    network? Would you like to install servers, workstations, and laptops to
    work together? Do you want the stability of Debian with network services already preconfigured? Do you wish to have a web-based tool to manage
    systems and several hundred or even more user accounts? Have you asked
    yourself if and how older computers could be used?

    Then Debian Edu is for you. The teachers themselves or their technical
    support can roll out a complete multi-user multi-machine study
    environment within a few days. Debian Edu comes with hundreds of
    applications pre-installed, and you can always add more packages from

    The Debian Edu developer team is happy to announce Debian Edu 11
    "Bullseye", the Debian Edu / Skolelinux release based on the Debian 11 "Bullseye" release. Please consider testing it and reporting back (<debian-edu@lists.debian.org>) to help us to improve it further.

    About Debian Edu and Skolelinux

    Debian Edu, also known as Skolelinux [1], is a Linux distribution based
    on Debian providing an out-of-the box environment of a completely
    configured school network. Immediately after installation, a school
    server running all services needed for a school network is set up just
    waiting for users and machines to be added via GOsa², a comfortable web interface. A netbooting environment is prepared, so after initial
    installation of the main server from CD / DVD / BD or USB stick all
    other machines can be installed via the network. Older computers (even
    up to ten or so years old) can be used as LTSP thin clients or diskless workstations, booting from the network without any installation and configuration at all. The Debian Edu school server provides an LDAP
    database and Kerberos authentication service, centralized home
    directories, a DHCP server, a web proxy and many other services. The
    desktop environment contains more than 70 educational software packages
    and more are available from the Debian archive. Schools can choose
    between the desktop environments Xfce, GNOME, LXDE, MATE, KDE Plasma,
    Cinnamon and LXQt.

    Download options, installation steps and manual -----------------------------------------------

    Official Debian Network-Installer CD images for both 64-bit and 32-bit
    PCs are available. The 32-bit image will only be needed in rare cases
    (for PCs older than around 15 years). The images can be downloaded at
    the following locations:

    * http://get.debian.org/cdimage/release/current/amd64/iso-cd
    * http://get.debian.org/cdimage/release/current/i386/iso-cd

    Alternatively official Debian BD images (more than 5 GB in size) are
    also available. It is possible to set up a whole Debian Edu network
    without an Internet connection (including all desktop environments and localization for all languages supported by Debian). These images can be downloaded at the following locations:

    * http://get.debian.org/cdimage/release/current/amd64/iso-bd
    * http://get.debian.org/cdimage/release/current/i386/iso-bd

    The images can be verified using the signed checksums provided in the
    download directory.
    Once you've downloaded an image, you can check that its checksum matches
    that expected from the checksum file; and that the checksum file has not
    been tampered with. For more information about how to do these steps,
    read the verification guide [5].
