Can you, or anyone else, tell which exact changed are to be made from woody to
testing? I have upgraded, but no thin-clients works anymore (we have changed
the ip-set up because we have an existing system to adapt to; the upgrade had
to be made in order to use the newest packages of openoffice in norwegian;
they cant be installed on woody).

I managed to change the Keyboard using this:
removing kde-i18n-no_NO and installing kde-i18n-nb_NO and nn_NO

I dont understand what you mean here. Is it a Problem to get OOo to work as
multiusers under Sarge?
