Hey where can I get mp3 plugins for xmms I've tried a few places t in vain. I need it for Slackware for the moment. And gimme links for debian too.

Slackware's XMMS does not come with mp3 support? I use slackware 10.1 and XMMS plays MP3 files without a problem. Maybe you could remove your xmms package and replace it with a one for 10.1 from www.slackware.com/pb

@tech:
I typed after proper xorg sources.lst in /etc/apt :
$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get-upgrade(will install xorg)
$sudo apt-get install xserver-xfree86(or xserver-xorg)
Or launch synaptic select xserver-xfree86 dummy pack for upgrade to Xorg.
Best of Lux :D

Hi all.

I am a linux newbie. Currently I am using SuSE 9.2 Pro but I want to switch to Debian (or its derivatives) because I don't like proprietory software. Please tell me which is the recent version and what's the size regarding no. of CDs/DVDs? Also please tell me how can I get the package in India. I stay in Kolkata.

Thanks for any reply.

@riyaz :
I tried netinstall using dataone for my uncle who wants debian for his lateX works,,,it is eqiuvalent to cd install except downloading packages according to your setup.in the process installer will ask you to setup your internet connection.beware of the ncurses installer while selecting preset install options.for eg; Installer showing which preselected package collection to install .the options given are like Desktop env,server install,.. etc..there is already graphical(Desktop) environment appeared to be marked.but it isn't.
u need to select needed by using '_' space bar;thus there will be two aestrich(*) marked.a Desktop install needs some 500~=MB download (not sure)
If U r expert U can select packages manually by aptitude...

There will be two kind of releases

1. stable : This one is the last publicly released version of a software that is tested completely, and bugfixed.

2. testing : These releases are updates to the last stable releases, and will contain experimental features. Testing releases may contain several bugs, as their primary aim is to find these bugs in the experimental features. These are also known as beta releases. Beta releases are not advised for end users. Use at your own release.
