Re: DOH! (glibc 2.1.91)
I believe that the idea here is that if you try it, you can SERIOUSLY damage the
stability of your system. To avoid people who scream if they try it, it's best
to make it obvious that this may happen. If you want to give it a try, then
good luck, but you may need to wipe and re-install the OS again to get it back
to normal operation.
