Migrating to Debian: questions
I am new to Debian but I have been using Linux since 1995. I enjoy the idea of Debian that offers total independence so I am willing very much to learn it well.
I have installed 3.0R2. It installed kernel 2.2 instead of 2.4. Now, how can I use apt to have the 2.4 installed?
Also, how can I change the sources.list to upgrade my system to the new packages like gnome 2.6, KDE 3.3, Mozilla 1.7, etc.
I have installed the base system and then did the X window installating followed by KDE. Everything works but KDE fonts are nasty. How can I fix the fonts? Download more fonts, or shall I say the appropriate fonts?
How can I setup the sound? Is there any howto? I have installed ALSA with apt-get but the system does not detect my hardware. Where shall I go for help?
In order to have Kernel 2.6, I guess I have to compile it manually myself, right? Well, that I have done before. Or can I do it with apt-get.
Thanks in advance.
