I just installed Xandros 2.0 Linux which is a Debian 4.0 (sarge) distribution with version of KDE 3.1.4.
I downloaded and installed Return to Castle Wolfenstien and it works. But i can't figure out how to install the Nvidia drivers, i can't shut down the x server. I am also having trouble installing the new kopete 8.4. If anyone could give me some pointers on how to get up and running I would be most appreciative.
You can shutdown the x-server with CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE or you can logout and in the login screen there's a list box in which you can choose to login on the command line.
If you have the NVIdia drivers from their site you go into the command line just open Konsole and you're there. Then do su if you aren't on your root account yet. cd into the folder you downloaded the NVidia drivers in and do
./"name of the driver without quotation marks"
edit to get kopete upgraded:
go into the commandline as root and use apt:
apt-get install kopete
that'll download the latest version
