RE: Newbie apt-get question


Thanks for the tip. /etc/debian_version does say 3.0 but the kernel is
2.2.19, is that correct?  I thought they were using 2.4 now??

Also, the dpkg output says xfree86-common 4.1.0-16 but I don't get a
xfree86.log.0 in /var/log and the xdm.log still shows 3.3.6.  Any clue

Thanks again!!

Well, you can cat out /etc/debian_version.  If you did update to 
stable, it should say 3.0.

Did you log out of your X session and log back in after updating?

You can do something like

dpkg -l | grep xfree

to see what version is installed.
