Hi, I've downloaded Samba as a .deb file. Is there an easy way for me to install from that?

dpkg -i <package> should work. Check the dpkg man pages for exact syntax.

I'm probably doing this all wrong, have put the distro in /root/debs


UNCLELEO:~# ls -Al debs

UNCLELEO:~# dpkg -i samba_3.0.20b

Can you help straighten me out here?

P.S. How come you didn't bring it in through apt-get or synaptic or aptitude (just curious!)

I've got a hosed up woody install on a marginal pc - 166Mhz/48MB ram and broken cdrom although it worked for the mini-iso install. OTOH if I can get samba working that'll be okay enough to keep this on my network.

Thanks in advance.
