try running apt-get clean to clean out you package cache..then apt-get update
If that doesnt fix it..add this...
APT::Cache-Limit "8388608";

to..
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/70debconf

and I ment for you to add contrib non-free to your mirrors..not to copy my testing mirror into your list.I was just showing you where to add contrib non-free too.You can remove the testing repos you copied from my list.If you want to step up to testing its better to use mirror near you..

I tried Korea and Russia (I live in India), then I try deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch main but all the time I got this ...

Reading package lists... Done

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

BTW for the assembly language programming of microcontroller I installed "picasm" from Synaptic , now as I typed picasm in Terminal I got this ...

How would I open a new blank file for writing a program ???

wow

instead of typing ./configure into the terminal, type ./flashplayer-installer


im sure theres some install notes in the directory, type < ls > to view all the files in the directory and look for a file named README or something similiar, type more README to view the file.

just go back to the site and read faq..its the first question

http://www.debian-multimedia.org/faq.php
It wont effect installing packages.install the pubkey with dpkg -i
and you wont see it again..
as far as the program,,try reading the manpage..
if you type man then the name of any app it will open manual for program
so man picasm

I dont know why your having that issue..all your repos are for etch..so dependencies should be worked out by apt..Its saying the version of lib's on your pc is older version than what flash plugin requires..how did you go from Debian 64 to etch 32 bit with 686 kernel?did you download net install of etch i386 and do a fresh install??did you do apt-get update then apt-get upgrade??

I did run apt-get update and upgrade !!!!!, Yes it was net install I followed http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst#netboot and this http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dist...ages/hd-media/
I did not downloaded the first file on the second link because it was not instructed to do so in the first link

Sorry this should be the "first link "
http://www.debian.org/releases/stabl...h04s05.html.en

this is what you should have downloaded..either the net install or business size cd for i386

http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/
Just download netins iso..burn to cd and boot..it even has a graphical installer now.
when you install..at point you will be asked to choose mirror for it to download ..choose location close to you do get best download speed..if at boot you select advance options,,you will see you have a option to install other desktop..If you prefer kde choose kde..if you prefer xfce choose it..by default Debian installs gnome as desktop

I see that is a "testing" version shouldn't I Download a stable one ???, I will download at night as the speed will be better, hope it will work .

BTW: I have ubuntu 8.10 and ubuntu 8.04 LTS (both orderd from net, official ubuntu site) but none boot, I mean it does boot but after the ubuntu logo with sliding bar the screen just goes blank just one tiny desh keep flashing, I have waited for hours but nothing happens, may be because my ram is just 248 MB (I installed 256 but god knows what has happened ) I will see what a new 512MB costs me and then decide what to do ,Thanks for help

most modern operating systems REQUIRE more ram than 256
if ALL you have is 256 ram then look at" knoppix" and "Puppy linux"
http://www.knoppix.net/
http://www.puppylinux.org/
and a web browser will use a bit Seamonkey ( as i wright this) is using ~40 meg of ram, X is 40meg more ,nautilus is 30meg more . I am using 303 meg out of 1 gig of ram.

actually with debian..you want the testing version..the stable version is old.its rock solid stable,,but all the packages are old.and unless your running a server or something..testing is what you want..youll find that the testing version is very stable..Im running Sid(unstable)..but you should stick with Lenny(testing)..and if you do have that little memory Puppy is a good choice..or Vector Linux..i actually have this laptop dual booted with Debian/Kde and Vector Linux light edition...Vector is based on Slackware..but right out of the box it will play flash,dvd's,etc...and its not a very big download..if you choose to install debian again..choose Xfce as your desktop..it's lighter on the system

Light Edition: Pentium 166 or better, 64MB RAM minimum, 1.8GB hard drive space for full system - more for your data.

http://vectorlinux.com/

I would really consider Puppy Linux or Vector rather than debian for your pc..I personally liked vector more than Puppy..But Puppy is only a 94 meg download...try both..

well..Puppy dosent have as many packages a Debian..debian has the largest package library..Im booted in Vector Linux right now..and i looked for those packages and there not there..And Puppy is a live cd that you can run completely from memory..or install..its less than a 100 meg download..i believe they recommen 256 of memory..not sure on that..you can probably get by with using Debian but would recommend using either XFCE as dekstop or you can try Lxde..those are both options for a low memory system like yours..

Thumbs up

Yes I just tried Puppy it is really a puppy , it's just like a toy to play with not a full operating sys. but I managed to start flash player any way I'll either try the Debian you suggested or if I can afford now a 512MB RAM then I'll try ubuntus I have, thanks for help.

At last I succssesfuly run flash player, I been trying netinst all the time and that was the problem now I bought a CD/DVD W/R and have made a Debian Lenny CD it roks , just that it doesn't cone with those packages, I have to download even Synaptic !! and ofcourse office and all that too, but it's very good, much better than Etch though little RAM hungry (in GNOME), I'm Downloading KDE Hope that will improve Speed. THANKS FOR HELP , Hope my PicKit2 will also run on this but let me just get necessary pacakeges, now I will start a new thread.
