    dumb question


    I'm downloading the Debian DVD right now, and I've two different files displayed that I can download:binary 1 and binary 2. Are you supposed to use one of the two or both?

    Take a look at this thread:

    You can also download minimal "netinst" CD and do network installation.

    Ahh sometimes I miss the fact that Sarge never failed me. But then today I got Xgl to (sort of) work... gives Apple a run for its money in visual effects. So I guess sid has its benefits .

    I knew that!
    “Sid on Mac”, and working! You definitely beat me.
    I had it working on an old iMac (a friend's machine) last summer, but that was only until the next reboot. Did the netinstall several times later, with no luck. Oh well ... maybe I will get a Mac for myself one day, and try it again. Just curious, on which Apple you've got it working?

    Oh no I meant that using an Xgl server (on any machine) gives you access to visual effects similar to (and in some cases cooler than) Apple's OS X effects... I'm not one for too many fancy effects though--too much performance loss. So to clarify, I'm not using any Apple machines. Sorry for being ambiguous. So if you've gotten any Linux to work on a Mac you've got me beat-I've never even tried!
