I'm a little confused here. If 3.96 was the last version distributed by Debian,
why cannot I install it without the three files demanded by 4.20 and only
found in the unstable branch of the archive. Could my attempt to install
4.20 have left some 'memory or record' so that 3.96 decides it would
like them too? Was 3.96 distributed as suitable for distributions before
Learning is going to be a long-haul my present rate of progress - but I'll
get there somehow!
