Is it safe to upgrade slink to libc-2.1 from potato
I want to ask if it is safe to upgrade slink's libc-2.0 to potato's
libc-2.1. Are there some slink packages dependent specifically on libc2.0,
which would not work with libc-2.1?
I installed kernel 2.2.10 and I would like to be able to grab some sources
from potato and compile them. But some package sources depend on kernel
headers for 2.2.x and don't compile with kernel headers 2.0.x available
from libc-dev-2.0 in slink. Such a package is netbase for example. I can
easilly break with Debian tradition and install symlinks from
/usr/src/linux to /usr/include, but I don't want to do this, so I think
the best way is to install libc-dev-2.1, which is dependent on libc-2.1.
What do you think?
