    Cool [SOLVED] Accessing Repo's through GUI

    Hello,
    I have only been using linux for a couple days (Hardy) and was wondering how to access these repositories everyone is talking about. Ive used $ apt-get install package a couple times but if I don't know the package name I don't really know how to get the piece im looking for. Im actually trying to put together a LAMP stack so I can make a web server or myth box that will allow me to access my Xbox media center.(Maybe to ambitious so early?....Luckily some people I know are Unixheads ) How do I find a repo for something like MySQL or Perl?

    System > Administration > Synaptic package manager

    Then just search for what you want.

    To see all programs and files, use Synaptic Package Manager in the System Menu. To just see Programs, Add/Remove under Applications is a little easier to use.

    There no stupid Questions, only really easy ones.

    I don't mind these threads, some people won't post, but everyone needs answers.

    The only stupid questions is the question that is not asked.
