Dapper Dodges

I dist-upgraded from Breezy to Dapper - a bad mistake, lvm shutdown and unmounting at reboot failed and corrupted my root FS like a Labour Lord,

In the end I had to do a re-installation of Dapper flight 5 which leaves the problem of all the Ubuntu missing packages that are required for a useful system.

Here are some of the harder ones, saved for posterity:

For Amarok, install amarok-xine and configure xine to use ALSA - yay!

For dvd playing, add this to sources.list

deb-src ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat sarge main

And then after apt-get update do

apt-get -b build-dep libdvdcssapt-get -b source libdvdcssdpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.9-0sarge0.0_i386.deb libdvdcss2-dev_1.2.9-0sarge0.0_i386.deb

My sources.list is:
