Okay, I took the bait.. =) (Not that I can upload <grin>).
The following packages needed upgrading:
perl was annoying to upgrade, as I had to butcher my status file to get
some dependancies filled.
I have tested: apt-get source, apt-get install, and apt-get remove using
the 'ftp' method. They all appear to work within normal parameters.
Anyone who has the 'oasis' machine in their sources.list can apt the
packages that they'd like. If you need these, and can't wait until
someone posts them onto the Debian machines, email me privately and I'll
give you the path. I posted a machine once publicly, and had to move my
box so that slashdot stopped hammering me.
Note that I have not signed these packages yet. It's escaping my brain
how to do so now that they're on a different machine. I'll try and
I am a Unitarian *Universalist* - RUAUU2? =)
