Re: Hello! (and zombie processes...)
Actually, it did, but when I finally got it installed it made such a pig's ear
out of the rest of my system that I wound up just starting over from scratch.
It wasn't clear to me at the time the proper way to get the experimental
package installed properly without hosing everything else.
Anyhoo, so far so good with this patched libc6.1 package, I'm still waiting
for my kernel to build but ran KDE for a bit and messed around, I didn't get
any zombie processes, usually I'll get at least one from artsd.
