Compiling netatalk 3.0.2 for Debian stable (6.0.6)

1.) Install some prerequisites:
sudo apt-get install automake libtool build-essential pkg-config checkinstall git-core avahi-daemon libavahi-client-dev libgcrypt11 libgcrypt11-dev

2.) Configure the software with dhx2_passwd in mind:

./configure –with-init-style=debian –with-zeroconf

3.) Setup the netatalk configuration file (typically /usr/local/etc/afp.conf)

A.I. Caramba

You’ll know real Turing-complete A.I. has been created when it can recognize a joke for the logical inconsistency that it contains. Not necessarily by rote pattern matching, but by cognitive understanding of the disconnect that underlies the formation of mirth.
