dang, I thought debian would prompt me to put in cd2 if it wanted it (like
installing from many windows cd's). It never occurred to me to mount cd2
and then try installing xawtv from it.
So I put binary 2 in mounted it and then dselect, then updated, then select
and guess what. xawtv didn't show up. x11 section is there but xawtv
isn't in the package list, at least I couldn't find it. I tried '/' to find
x11 and xtr and then scrolled through the list. Neither turned up xawtv.
I have slink.
Give a skeptic an inch... and he'll measure it.
