Re: How unstable is hamm?
<chuckle> Yep, that's it! But additionally, there is some sort of
problem with comerr that I encounted and after trying to get dselect to
choose an acceptable solution I finally gave up and forced.
Obviously it is a problem for any sysadm when required functions move from
one package to another and dselect fails to complete the new installation
with a removal of the old. One tends to fell "kinda left high and dry"
since the changes are not necessarily clear or obvious.
