Debian 1.2 Installation
problems with installing debian 1.2 :
(hmmm.. maybe i also installed some bo files)
msql : by default /usr/sbin/run-msqld ist started to run msqld. if you
don't have mail installed, the script breaks. (give a comment to
dpkg: using dpkg -iGOEB files... (i had not mirrored all packages,
and dpkg breaks when there are some broken symlinks :-(((
to install tex dialog came up to select the languages, but it

xfractint : /usr/doc/xfractint is a file.

nedit: should have a menu file.
x11: i had to add /usr/X11R6/lib to /etc/ld.conf to get things running
libjpeg/libjpeg6a: in my dselect list appeared 2 libjpeg packages
