That's probably the best thing to do.

It's better to start with a fresh clean system than cleaning up something half broken.

Out of curiosity, what's the result of the commands you did earlier, on a fresh install?

Code: Select all

cat /etc/debian_version
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
lsb_release -a

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org wheezy/updates main contrib non-free

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 7.1 (wheezy)
Release: 7.1

I did change sources.list to remove unstable repo thougth

Ok so you're using the last wheezy release (7.1) with is a stable.

It's better than that old stable squeeze (or that jessie/sid for a server imho).

Btw, if you don't need authentication, you could use the armagetronad-dedicated Debian's package.

Also your kernel should be linux-image-3.2.0-4, right?

Linux vps 2.6.32-042stab076.8 #1 SMP Tue May 14 20:38:14 MSK 2013 i686 GNU/Linux

I suppose it's a self compiled kernel.

Nothing to worry about.
