- Were there any non-Debian packages installed before the upgrade?  If
  so, what were they?


- Was the system pre-update a pure woody system? If not, which packages
  were not from woody?
Yes, it was pure woody pre-update.

- Did any packages fail to upgrade?
yes, libc6. needs newer kernel.

Further Comments/Problems:

doing upgrade tests here, and doing it from what the release notes say,
i just discovered that there is _NO_ aptitude in woody for mips/mipsel.

So documentation MUST mention to first install aptitude from sarge (and
it's depends) before doing the rest of the upgrade with aptitude.

Upgrading also fails because libc6 needs a newer kernel. (2.4.22)

Name Service Switch update in the C Library: pre-installation question.

Running services and programs that are using NSS need to be restarted,
otherwise they might not be able to do lookup or authentication any more.
The installation process is able to restart some services (such as ssh or
telnetd), but other programs cannot be restarted automatically.  One such
program that needs manual stopping and restart after the glibc upgrade by
yourself is xdm - because automatic restart might disconnect your active
X11 sessions.

Known packages that need to be stopped before the glibc upgrade are:
        xdm kdm gdm postgresql xscreensaver
This script detects the following services which you are required
to stop before the upgrade:

If you want to interrupt the upgrade now and continue later, please
answer No to the question below.

Do you want to upgrade glibc now? [Y/n]

This bug report refers to problems upgrading from a stable woody system 
to an almost complete sarge, while Sarge was still testing or in some 
cases, an even earlier transition. Since sarge has been released for 
several months now, I think this report no longer applies, and am 
closing it. Many of these issues were fixed, the rest most likely do not 
matter. If you feel this bug was closed prematurely, please reopen the bug.

Thank You,
