You may want to disable the debian DVD as a software source.
Though if you are new to linux use Mint instead, while debian is a cornerstone of linux it is not for those new to linux.
Agreed. Although Debian is, indeed, a 'cornerstone of Linux' (the number of distros based on it, either directly or indirectly, is hard to estimate.....but it's a lot, trust me), as Madman points out, Debian itself is rather old-fashioned and stuffy in a lot of its practices. It's far from being easy for a beginner.
Ubuntu, more or less based on it, is far easier, since Canonical have tried to make it so.
Linux Mint, based on Ubuntu, is easier still, and is commonly recommended to beginners over & over again.
I also run AntiX, alongside my kennel-full of 'Puppies', which is based on Debian. Because I'm used to doing so, I manually moved stuff around in the file-system to install Flash & PepperFlash.....I simply can't be ar**d with the terminal. It's too much like hard work, trying to learn all that crap, as far as I'm concerned.....but then I do have a somewhat odd approach to computing, it's true!
