i just installed debian on my machine(this being the 5th time) and i did get X working finally...however as you know debian woody comes with kde 2.2 so i downloaded the first two cd's of sid and added those to my dources.list file and then did apt-get update and apt-get upgrade..hoping that i now have sid installed(do i?).
newayz when i did startx again i am still getting kde 2.2 so i went to kde's site to look for debian sources and i did find a line to add to my sources.list even though it said that it was for woody...i still gave it a shot...again the same steps update and upgrade...however i still have kde 2.2.
can anyone run me through how to install 3.1 thru apt and also a good sources.list file...i have a very minimal file right now which looks like this:
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 20040109 _Sid_ - fsn.hu unofficial i386 Binary-2 (20040109)]/ unstable contrib main main/debian-installer non-US/contrib non-US/main non-US/non-free non-free
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 20040109 _Sid_ - fsn.hu unofficial i386 Binary-1 (20040109)]/ unstable contrib main main/debian-installer non-US/contrib non-US/main non-US/non-free non-free
deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.3/Debian stable main
another problem i am having is with my sound server...when i do startx it says that it cant find /dev/dsp however i did check in /dev and it does has dsp...i changed this devices ownership and group to normal user and chmod'd it to 777...still to no effect(and oh...this happens both as root as well as normal user).
I am very excited about finally being able to install debian...i would really appreciate any help i could get to get this thing working exactly to my liking...
Thanks a lot.
