At http://www.debian.org/releases/lenny/i386/release-notes/ I see
Release Notes for Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (lenny), Intel x86
although throughout the release notes both "lenny" (&releasename;)
and "Lenny" (&Releasename;) were used. In the trunk (squeeze)
release notes I find:
- Due to an unfortunate interaction of a kernel fix with PCI Express
: subsystem, Lenny default kernel will fail to boot on Sparc
- workstations with PCI Express slots, like Ultra 25 and Ultra
which is probably out of date;
: <contrib>Lenny installation</contrib>
(and similar), which do not form part of the output;
III. &Nextreleasename; etc in some translations, which presumably have
their own rules.
Is there something left to fix?
