Antwort: 2.4.1 kernel and Debian
Use testing. Testing provides xfree 4.0.2 and the modutils you need for 2.4.1.
KDE installes fine and runs without problems. The only problem I have: kwintv
refuses to show a tv-picture with xfree 4.0.2. For sound try the modules from
2.4.1. I have a similar system like you - the installation went smooth.

Thema: 2.4.1 kernel and Debian
Tonite I'm going to install a fresh Debian on my Computer and then Upgrade to
the 2.4.1 kernel. First of all, wish me luck. Next, can anyone give me a
status on some of the problems that I will be facing. I've also heard that
2.4.1 compiles better on unstable rather that stable. Is this true? Shoud I
use unstable? To give more info on the machine, it is a clone, AMD Thunderbird
800mhz, 128 meg of ram, 7gig IDE HD, Sound Blaster sound card, Nvida TNT2 w/16
meg, Voodoo2, 2 USB, 3C905B-TX nic. I also plan on installing KDE 2.0, I've
also heard of problems with KDE 2.0 and 2.4.1, can anyone comment on this?
Also any sugestions on the install would be greatly accepted, for instance,
should I use the Sound Blaster modual or should I use ALSA?
Thanks for any help
