Re: Hello! (and zombie processes...)

If someone wants to give these packages a whirl I've put them up at:


the .debs are in "debs" and the patched libc6 source package + test is 
in "source".  When I built them I just did a "dpkg -i *" and it seemed to go 
alright, though I don't think you'd normally need to install the debug and 
profile libraries.  Note that locales and locales-all showed up as ready to 
upgrade after installing these, I've gone and upgraded them and haven't 
noticed any problems so far.  I've also since removed the debug/profiled 
packages from my install.
