You want the second one, self extracting file.

No red hat therefore no rpm, and you don't have an amd64 build.

http://phex.kouk.de/download.php

"All other Systems (Linux/Unix etc.)
Download phex_2.8.6.95.zip"

unzip, go into terminal cd into the directory
"java -jar phex.jar"

if you're feeling lazy you can make a script to start it up... hopefully your java is installed properly

I typed in java and nothing came up. Is it because i've put it in /home/mshar? does it matter if it's in a local folder?

I messed up my MBR (again). I have to re-install debian. Or is there a way to just install GRUB? In fact, I can't even get my system to boot CDs anymore. I'll reset the BIOS and see if that fixes it.

if it don't boot isos that's bad

are you sure you haven't changed the boot order?

make sure cd is first

yes you can reset grub. get to a commandline and type "grub"

No, it's a different sound manager.... and there are a fair few, some of which work better with KDE at handling multiple sound channels.

The main ones will be OSS (obselete), ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) and ESD (Enlightenment Sound Daemon). I think in Ubuntu I had to switch from ESD to ALSA in order to get xmms to work...

I've managed to update/upgrade my kernel. It seems somewhat faster and efficient. My next challenge is a custom kernel :/.
