Recently I installed Ubuntu Dapper Drake in my laptop and started to use it as I do with my Debian system. But still I ve learnt how to configure wireless cards in GNU/Linux so I ll try to get my favourite distro Debian GNU/Linux in my laptop.

I use xmms to listen to music and I ve installed it in my Ubuntu box. But unfortunately I have a lot of .wma files. So I wanted to get wma support in my xmms. For the above I did the following.

sudo apt-get install alien
wget http://mcmcc.bat.ru/xmms-wma/xmms-wma-1.0.5-1.i386.rpm
sudo alien xmms-wma-1.0.5-1.i386.rpm
sudo dpkg -i xmms-wma_1.0.5-2_i386.deb

Now am listening to my favourite songs which are there in .wma format.

I ll shortly blog about my experience in configuring the Broadcom bcm4318 wireless cards in GNU/Linux

Cheers for the tutorial.
