Debian package installation


Hello

I downloaded "sarge-i386-netinst.iso" and preinstalled Debian. After It asked me what pakackes to install. I had some problems

I selected "Workstation" and "Custom pakages" option.

- By default, debian install aspell-en, but how to install aspell-ru (my own language)

- How to choose 2.6 kernel to install? By default my installation works on 2.4.27 kernel..

- How to add custom packages, which are not listed? And how to check, are they aviable on FTP or not?

Thanks.

Debian installs KDE and GNOME Wm's. how can I make them start after package installation? Maybe some GDM (or something) custom configuration is required?

Some things to try:

apt-get install aspell-ru

apt-get install gdm

As far as the new kernel goes, there are loads of instructions over at the Debian forum. It is pretty easy if you don't want to recomplie one. I think you just do apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.XX and then update Grub.

As far as custom packages goes, it just depends on what you want. To see which packages are available you can get synaptic (apt-get install synaptic) then browse the packages.

Have fun wih Debian!
