If you run DC++ through WINE and have found file then try to download it DC++ will failed. For avoiding this behavior you must turn off "Show progress bars for transfers" option in the Settings -> Advanced. Now you can use this client with pleasure.

During using Debian Etch I found some issues which I have described in this article.
Ugly fonts in the Iceweasel (Firefox) application
When I changed Gnome to KDE the fonts in Iceweasel became to differ from other GTK applications (e.g. GIMP, Evolution). For resolving this issue I found the following solution:
Add this string
gtk-font-name="Your favorite font name and size" in the gtk config. In my case this looks like this:
File ".gtkrc-2.0.mine" included in the .gtkrc-2.0 :
NTFS write support
You can found the solution for this issue on the following site. Now I use ntfs-3g module for writing on the ntfs partitions. To add support your required locale you should add the following option to mount: locale=ru_RU.utf8. The list of /etc/fstab for example:
/dev/hda2 /mnt/win ntfs-3g umask=0,locale=ru_RU.utf8 0 0
I hope ntfs-3g more or less stable :)
Here's a short guide to installing Debian Etch 4.0 on the Acer Aspire 1642. Let's go!
|Processor||Intel Pentium M 1.7G|
|Video card||Intel 915G|
|Sound card||Intel HDA (ALC 883 chipset)|
|Pair of hands||Not growing from an ass|
After installation of Debian Etch 4.0 I found the following issues
- sound card is not supported by kernel 2.6.18
- resolution 1280x800 is not supported
For resolving first issue you must change kernel to version 2.6.20+, because sound card is not supported by kernel 2.6.18. You should download kernel 2.6.20 from www.kernel.org and compile it using the following command:
# make-kpkg --append_to_version -smp --initrd kernel_image modules_image
Then you should install it:
# dpkg -i kernel_blablabla.deb
and add "model" parameter into file /etc/modprobe.d/sound:
options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=acer
and reboot linux. When you run amarok or another audio player sound will rise from the dead :)
We need to install 915resolution package so open up a terminal and type:
# apt-get install 915resolution
Reboot X11 and enjoy with new resolution.
To make the functionals keys work (fn+fxx, fn+up, fn+down) you should add the following code to the .bashrc or to an another place:
xmodmap -e 'keycode 160 = F16' # mute
xmodmap -e 'keycode 176 = F17' # volume up
xmodmap -e 'keycode 174 = F18' # volume down
xev utility can help you to retrieve a keycode of any key.
- KDE multimedia installation
- Opera browser (if you hate a slow mozilla firefox, fortunately, you can use konqueror)
- Tuning Debian Sarge (russian language)
