Living With Debian® Etch

I've now pretty much fully configured my new PC with Debian "Etch" for AMD64.

The base system went on perfectly with not a hitch. A few applications don't yet build for AMD64 yet, so I had to install them in a x86 chroot, but that wasn't too hard to do, and eventually I won't need it.

The only problems I've really had so far are building the nvidia kernel, and getting Xine to play MP3 files. Thankfully I was able to copy the nvidia.ko file from an identical working system, and configure amaroK to use GStreamer/ALSA instead of xine to play MP3s.
