Quick tip: setting up ntp on Debian

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxFor some reason, which a Linux newbie like me can't understand, the Debian distribution doesn't come with ntp (actually, this is a KnoppMyth R5A16 installation, so it might not be Debian's fault). But it is easy enough to install. I used aptitude. After installing ntp, you must configure /etc/ntp.conf. I have my own ntp server, so all I had to do was to insert a 'server' line. Make sure that all other server lines are commented ut. Finally, start ntp with /etc/init.d/ntp-server start. That's it.

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxHere is a quick tip for all Linux newbies (myself included):
if the sound card isn't detected properly (I was using a an old ISA PnP Sound Blaster Vibra 16 with Debian 3.1 and the card was detected, but didn't work), you can use alsaconf to set it up. The script is menudriven and is fairly easy to use.
