Re: etch backports


I might try to see whether the upgrade went wrong, when I have the
time later. Only then will I be confident enough to try it out on this
(virtual) server that I am administrating.  :-)

btw, is there any effect if the kernel is still Etch while the rest of
the OS has moved on to Lenny? iianm, that is also the situation that I
am facing since Xen virtual hosts are using the dom0's kernel and all
of them started out as Etch.

Warm regards,
