apt-get install -f
dpkg --configure -a
if get error about cant overwrite a file
may have to install the fixed package with override of overwrite file thusly:
dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/filename_deb
sound in debian
I use alsa, thus install right kernel source then alsa-base alsa-modules and
run module-assistant select compile alsa
then can look at amixer or other gui mixers
download binary driver from nvidia
look at nvnews.net linux forum for latest drivers and issues
then download chmod 755 and run binary
after you make sure that you have
installed the linux-headers for your linux-image and make sure have a symlink
/usr/src/linux -> /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.18-4_whatever
