0.93 -> 1.1 upgrade procedure?
I rendered by system nonfunctional today. It wasn't entirely
unexpected, but it was disappointing.
I downloaded a snapshot of the development tree packages, and
ran dselect [I]nstall on them. (Ian J. -- FYI, this was with
dpkg-1.0.5, subsequent to the problems I've emailed you about).
The result was a system which booted OK but hung on login. I'm
guessing that this comes from the readline vs. bash problem which
was discussed here recently.
I had been running a hybrid system with the variously-revisioned
elf development packages announced on 11 Nov. Those packages
are now lost from my system, and I've now dropped back to a
0.93R6 system. What's the current recommended procedure for
installing elf and ncurses development upgrades to a 0.93R6
