I think the main ones are procps and modutils... You'll have
to poke around to see what versions are needed, but as long
as you're on unstable, they're _prolly_ already packaged.
Oh, and the new mini-devfsd if you're running devfs... You
_may_ be able to used the old one still, I dunno if the new
mini-devfs is in the Linus kernel yet.

Heh, good luck... I _believe_ they've recently moved over
to the new framebuffer/console architecture, so it'll be a
pretty large backport, I suspect.

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
