Why not just mount them automatically at boot via fstab?

Forgot about fstab. That was how I did it in Arch. Thank you.

That is my experience with Debian, which has been a solid long run too (ran it for ages). With that, since you did pull from experimental, you might want to keep an eye like you plan.

Anyways, if I get back into Debian I might have to pump out some debs for ya. i tend to do custom stuff for my self, quite often, even thought about making my own repo. My biggest issue is kernels and a few other tid bits, which usually end up in me building my own stuff. Anyways, need any help just let me know I've used debian for a very very long time. =P I remember using potato and the release of woody, only recently have I jumped to Fedora. Which I find just as good. GL!

Thanks. If you ever have some stuff put together that you'd like to share with the rest of the world, I have no problem pushing it into one of my repositories for you. thumb.gif
Now I just need to get the Netflix package working and I'd be pretty content for now. I tried it out a couple weeks ago on Debian and had a lot of issues, I can't even get it to install correctly from what I've been reading, let alone seeing it actually run. But this can wait for another weekend. I've already pushed well over 130 packages in the last two days, I think that's enough for now tongue.gif

I've got netflix working great on LMDE UP6. I used the Ubuntu PPA, I had to enable multi-arch for i386 to install it (and it dragged in alot of 32bit libs) but it plays fine. You could fetch your packages from there, the main thing is wine-compholio

Now, I only need to be able to access my other hard disks without needing to type in my root password. Is there a convinent group for that too? I tried "disk" but it didn't work.

Use the Yast partition module.

Hmm, maybe instead of pulling from the ppa just grab the source files and build? That way it's debian specific, or at least closer than pulling Ubuntu stuff. And he could mend it for Debian dependencies too. So wine-comphollo is patched for netflix then?

This will probably be what I try next. When I tried to install it on one of my computers a week or two ago, I also used the Ubuntu PPA with very limited results.
Like you said, I guess i'll just pull the sources and "debianize" it and see where that gets me.

yeah, although it's working flawlessly on my machine (the large number of packages is mainly for 32-bit software)

What exactly am I supposed to do in there? Change the mount location? Or what? confused.gif

How do I save those settings for the next login?

UPDATE: Never mind, I figured it out. Thanks! smile.gif
