Well Ikarios have what I want, but only will accept payment by chéque
bancaire, and I can't use my carte bleue for paying online.
This is incredible in the 21st century. I have to write out a cheque, get on
my bike, and ride 20 mins to the post office, perhaps stand in a queue for 20
mins to buy a stamp (un timbre), then post it. 10 days later I may receive my
I give up.
I have built a new machine, and have had problems with installing Fedfora 8,
Archlinux, and Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10). Having got these distro's
installed, I want to get Debian Etch installed. I only have Woody 3.0.r2
discs, and don't want to go through the hassle of upgrading to Sarge, then
Etch, along with the transition from xfree86 to xorg again.
Oh to hell with Debian. I have Sarge, Etch, and Lenny on another machine, and
really wanted to see if there were problems installing Etch on my new
machine, where I've had problems installing other distros.
