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

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.
