naturally not, should i ? i have a perfectly clean and up to date 'official'
debian/sid/ppc system.

so you tell me i should get glibc2.1, will it break my system ?

so if i want to use tex stuff, i should recompile it ? is it that you are
saying ? Is it that the tetex package are actually broken for the current
debian/ppc, because we changed glibc and it was not recompiled because there

I have been packaging ocaml and mlgtk lately, as well as developping for the
latest, i have tried to build ggilib, but without success, but there is no
planar fbdev support in it, and i fried my graphic board last month, also they

what about berlin, is it packaged ? i will try it, but is it very useful ? i
will have to install mesa first, and have a look at it, which section is it in
