If you upgrade a slink installation to libc6 2.1.1, you will probably have
some problems. I know I did, and I went back to libc6 2.07
I suppose you could upgrade to potato and avoid the problems.
If you try it on a slink system, do not go back from the potato version of
ld.so to the slink version or you will break the system; I just kept the newer
ld.so when I went back to the older libc6.
