thank you!widget wrote:One thing that you should know about Debian is that they try very hard to offer, by default, only FOSS packages (Free Open Source Software). The linux kernel, for instance includes some firmware that does not meet Debians standards and they remove it.
They do offer most nonfree software on their servers in the nonfree repos. One thing most people should install as soon as they get their install up and running is the package "firmware-linux-nonfree".
You will have to enable the nonfree repos in your /etc/apt/sources.list. Mine looks like this;note that I have all the sources repos commented out (## ), don't need all that. Can be enabled by un commenting (remove the ## ) if I need them. I also do not use the backports repo. You may want all of them.deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

As this is not a Debian forum I suggest the;

Watch out for some strange character from SE Montana. Guy is nuts. Goes by widget.
