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)
