Re: Woody on Sony VAIO PCG-8A6M, GRX316G

Hi Charbel,

So you've got the same machine? Great.
I don't know. Haven't done much with it yet, but I guess so (this is the
reason I bought it ;))

As I said .. This is the first time not using SuSE. So there is a newer
version of debian avaliable but woody? How do I get it? I had a look at
the site and found a "testing"/"unstable" version. So it is this one,

Would this mean I will get XDFree 4.2 and the patched kernel with it?

Is it included in the unstable version?!

Thanks for that. 

Could we go through it step by step. You give some directions for step
one. I'll carry it out and come back to you???
