Hmmm. Would that mean that libc6.1-static apt can't be used on libcX <
libc6.1? But that would only be a problem with FTP/HTTP mirrors, wouldn't it?
I did test successfully with a local mirror and CDs. There's actually only a
_need_ for potato apt when upgrading from a set of CDs. FTP/HTTP upgrades can
very well use standard slink apt.
But, if this is true, that would mean static!=static any more. That would be
_very_ bad. Some more testing is required.
