Yeah - you can say goodbye to the conflicts. Most of the codecs are
in the Multiverse repo if they're not installed already.
A couple things I found helpful during migration:
sudo ln -s /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d /usr/sbin/service (or just remember
"invoke-rc.d" - but I can't :)
sudo apt-get install sysv-rc-conf (there seems to be no chkconfig)
sudo sysv-rc-conf (to turn on/off services)
