Ahhh… my leap into the world of Debian. Turned out much better than I expected! I installed using my Knoppix CD, which made the whole process much easier! The HD install script didn’t allow me to specify different partitions for different mount points, so I did that after the install was finished. I made a seperate partition for /home so that in future installs, I wouldn’t have to kill it.
I’m just going to throw a few notes here now:
Antialias in Phoenix (installed from here):
- userChrome.css and userContent.css – make sure it uses Luxi Sans or another antialiased font
Konsole AA fonts:
- Just grabbed a ton of fonts from baghat and threw them in /usr/share/fonts. This messed up the default sans font though and made it look really ugly.
- To fix that… see this Gentoo thread. Basically, turn off hinting for sans fonts.
Let’s see… oh yeah, dhclient:
- Wait time was too long originally for dhcp. So: “apt-get install dhcp-client” installs dhclient, which worked quite well. Edit /etc/dhclient.conf and edit timeout value.
Alright, I think that’s all I want to say for now. =)
