You mean "upgrade to potato"? I'd go for it.
I'm relativelly conservative about this since I can't afford having a
broken machine for long bug I got reports that potato is stable enough
and my expereience over the last two weeks is that it is indeed
Just one general tip - keep the slink version of important packages
around on your disk in case the upgrade disconnects you, I usually
dpkg-repack(1) stuff like pcmcia, wanpipe (on my home machine) and
The only time it crashed on me was when I played too much with the
previous (0.5) version of the Maestro driver. (Try 0.6 - it sounds
MUCH MUCH better) I left it running xmms in random mode with 0.6 for
the weekend on my desk at work, will report if I find it crashed next
