  I don't know why I haven't got any problems (one box was originally
  woody upgraded to sarge, others were sarge from the beginning). I
  just replaced all original sarge php packages with those from
  dotdeb. I have also mysql-client from dotdeb. I didn't get any issue
  on upgrades... Also upgrading one machine from sarge to etch went
  without problems, the same php packages were available from dotdeb
  for both sarge & etch. I just checked and I don't have anything from
  dotdeb besides all php4*, php-pear, libapache-mod-php4,
  libmysqlclient and mysql-common, mysql-client. Maybe problems arises
  when someone tries to use dotdeb's php extensions with original
  sarge php...

  bYE, Marki
