Re: sid/i386 upgrade problem

thanks Russell -- it's worse than that though ... dpkg won't work either
... I had to manually get an old libc by using ar and tar on an old deb
in the tmp directory, then do an export LD_PRELOAD of that lib ... that
got basic stuff back and i was able then downgrade properly with dpkg --
it seems to only effect folks running 2.2 level kernels ... a bug has
been filed.
