Excellent!

You should have the deb package for "remastersys" now as I just emailed it to you a bit ago.

Well my understanding is that we can go ahead and upgrade to Bianca stable or should we wait until tomorrow? I'm running Bianca BETA 014.

Hi Phil,

Thanks. The guide was corrected. As you can see if you refresh it you need to type sudo in front of the command.

OK Clem, thanks for this.
Now the broken links are removed and openoffice in french.
But I see no change (for instance Amarok 1.4.4).

No problem! I was doubting that's all!! And I am still...
I cannot update and I don't see any change :)
Thanks a lot for your help.

PS I tried every possibility of updating, incl. Synaptic. Nothing!

Maybe you're already up to date :)

Try "sudo aptitude show amarok", and if it says you've got 1.4.4, then try "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade".

Description : versatile and easy to use audio player for KDE
amaroK tries to be a little different, providing a simple drag and drop
interface that really makes playlist handling easy.

Features include:
* rapid playlist creation, with drag and drop from a directory view
* nice playlist browser for your existing playlists (PLS or M3U formats)
* collection-indexing support, for smart browsing and playlist creation
* possibility of accessing media via kioslaves, allowing you to play via smb://
or fish:// (normal streams are of course supported)
* inline ID3 tag editing, capable of retrieving tags via MusicBrainz
* album cover support: automatically displays album covers from the filesystem,
or downloaded on the fly
* miscellaneous audio effects, including crossfading
* easy bindable global shortcuts, rich DCOP interface
* On-Screen Display (OSD), on track change or at keypress
* iPod and iRiver support

Support for XMMS and libvisual visualization plugins is also compiled in (you
need to have xmms or libvisual0.4-plugins installed to be able to use it).
