 ok, this seems kind of strange. I deleted the local host things and the # infront of the bottom 5 urls. Now when i do apt-get update it says 0% connecting to ftp..blah blah whatever . It hangs there for a sec, then says "Something wicked happened resolving "non-us.debian.org:http' (-3)"  <-somethign like that.  what's going on??

 I was just reading the debian installation tutorial on this site and it said to test your network connection you should type in ping -c 4 google.ca. I did that, it hangs for 10 seconds then says ping: unknown host google.ca. So i'm assuming i have my network settings wrong. But i have my network settings the same as the are in evox, so i dont understand. I'm using a router if that is of any importance. Does linux use a special network port that my router could be blocking? If so, what port is it?

I added this line to the tutorial:

If you get a bunch of "localhost" errors, then your internet's not setup right:
Type in "cd /etc/network/" then "nano interfaces" (nano is a text editor and interfaces in your networkcfg file). Edit whatever you need (Static to DHCP or whatever). And save it,

Now type "ifdown eth0", then "ifup eth0", that restarts your network.

Repeat from "apt-get update".


Sounds like you need to change the word "Static" in that file to "DHCP".

 hmmm... i tried that already and when i tried restarting the network after it said it couldnt read the interfaces file, so i put it back. But i was also thinking that changing the network settings to DHCP could be the answer, but I can't figure out how. Any other suggestions?

 Np, if anyone else wants to know what to type in there (if it was empty like mine)
its

dhcp

iface eth0 inet dhcp

static

iface eth0 inet static

address 192.168.1.1   (varies obviously)
netmask 255.255.255


type man interfaces for more information

 also, if you want unstable sources (aka more software, however it is obviously unstable, aka beta and alpha.)

type nano /etc/apt/apt.sources

change the stable to unstable for all of the sources then do an apt-get update.

I also recommend doing an apt-get upgrade to upgrade the applications on your system

To search for a file in your cache

apt-cache search "application name here with no quotes"

apt-cache pkgnames is also useful.

Have fun

 A pretty nice and useful utility is Kpackage. It's a nice alternative to APT and can be used right in KDE. If you want a graphical alternative to APT and don't want to use Koffice there is Synaptic and also Aptitude. Synaptic is a graphical interface while Aptitude is a console application. To get Kpackage just type in Bash "apt-get install kpackage"
NOTE: You must have KDE sucussfully installed to install kpackage.

 do I need to have dns settings when I have a static IP?
I'm having problems browsing the web but vncviewer is working well (when I use IP address).

Where do I put them?.
Thanks

 Auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
  address xxx.xxx.x.xxx
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  gateway x.x.x.x

Just replace the x's with yours and the netmask if needed.  Dsn isn't required I believe

If that doesnt work try


auto eth0
  iface eth0 inet static    
  eth0 dns=xx.x.xx.x
  address xxx.xxx.x.xxx
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  gateway x.x.x.x

 I have installed Debian 0.3.1, but not the Kde3.1,because no internet connection at home, so is it possible to download the KDE3.1 package somewhere without xbox and then install it to xbox? if possible,please give a How To, thanks.

 I've followed all the steps but all I get are monochrome colors.
Actually, it's black, white and red.

The text is clear and the OS appears to be working.

I am using component video with the MS HD AV pack and I've tried both the vesa and riva xbe's
Using the normal composite video pack, I can see colors no problem.

Are any of you seeing this problem?

I can post my /var/log/dmesg if you think that might help diagnose the problem.
