Re: Libc6 - important question

Please Joost keep calm. I happen to think that the question is indeed
important for developers who want to release a libc6 version of their
packages but do not have the luxury of a spare system to break.

I have. And I only had a few very minor problems.

The worst part was that the postinst script of "locales" failed and it
left the new "libc5" unconfigured. I fixed it by hand.

Another problem I had was the new X server sending an out of sync signal
to my monitor. Fortunately, I managed to kill it before it fried my monitor.
I had to downgrade to the old X server.

Other than that, it went smooth. (I forgot: I also had to downgrade mgetty
because they one hangs forever sometimes)
