Libc6 Errors in slink
I tried a complete slink install on my test machine yesterday and found the following problems:
1. libc6 recommends timezone, but timezone is no longer in the dist. It is provided by timezones. Dpkg does not like it.
Solution: Change the timezone to timezones in libc6 recommends section. This is more a nuisance (sp) .
2. This is a major problem. The slink refuses to install libc6-dev. I think it is because libc6 replaces libc6-dev according to Packages.gz and a whole bunch of stuff depend on libc6-dev.
I do not know the solution. I will try tto remove the replaces clause and see what happens tonight.
3. The boot floppies are linked with a older version of libc6 (I think so because dselect tells me that
libc6 available=2.0.7v1 installed=2.0.6u1(or something)
