All the pluses, none of the glitches.

Hmm . . . I'll have to give Debian a try. Since my good PC is under construction, my old rig isn't playing very nice with Ubuntu 7.04. Well, at least the NVIDIA drivers and Compiz-Fusion lol. Maybe I'll give it a shot sometime.

I remember trying to configure debian around 4-5 years ago and getting disgusted. It's come quite a long way. I actually found it easier to install than any of the *buntus due to lack of bugs.

Holy cow . . . looking at Debian's download page, there are like 20+ things to d/l before you can burn a CD to install it!!! Even with the minimal installation CD, there are over 15 items to d/l. WTF?

I think you got the wrong page maybe?
http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/
Choose your platform and look for the "netinst.iso". I'm using the i386 atm and loving it. The .iso is only 163 mb, and the minimal install will connect to a server of your choosing afterwards and download the other packages you want.

Really sweet setup.

I didn't get the wrong page . . I just didn't know which one I needed to d/l or if I had to d/l all of them and throw them on a CD. Downloading now, I'll give it a try on my test rig.

Also, how are installing NVIDIA drivers on Debian versus Ubuntu? Ubuntu's drivers didn't play nice with my 6200 . . .

I can't speak for the 6200, but very easy on the 8800. You'll need almost exactly the same packages covered in the stickie, but it was quick and painless for me.

Debian GNU/Linux or [K]Ubuntu with Xorg 7.x

If you wish to install the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver on a Debian GNU/Linux or Ubuntu system that ships with Xorg 7.x, please ensure that your system meets the following requirements:

* development tools like make and gcc are installed
* the linux-headers package matching the installed Linux kernel is installed
* the pkg-config and xserver-xorg-dev packages are installed
* the nvidia-glx package has been uninstalled with the --purge option and the files /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx and /etc/init.d/nvidia-kernel do not exist

If you use Ubuntu, please also ensure that the linux-restricted-modules or linux-restricted-modules-common packages have been uninstalled. Alternatively, you can edit the /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules or /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common configuration file and disable the NVIDIA linux-restricted kernel modules (nvidia, nvidia_legacy) via:

DISABLED_MODULES="nv nvidia_new"

Additionally, delete the following file if it exists:

/lib/linux-restricted-modules/.nvidia_new_installed

Please note: unfortunately, it has become difficult to keep track of the pre-/post-installation steps required for [K]Ubuntu, and the above instructions may be incomplete. If in doubt, it is recommended that you use your distributor's NVIDIA Linux graphics driver packages, exclusively.

Cool stuff. I'm kinda used to Ubuntu doing everything for me so it'll be a nice adventure getting things to work on Debian. I just want Compiz-Fusion to run smoothly as it has done before (Ubuntu 6.10).

I'm installing Debian right now so I'll let you know how it goes.

The driver should offer to search the site, then build it's own. Just so long as your not missing any packages, which will fail the install, you should be ok.
