Neither. If you remove libc5, you will break your system and have to
reinstall completely. I repeat, DO NOT FORCE THE REMOVAL OF LIBC5 UNDER
ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Either downgrade to the earlier version of libc5 I
list at the end of the howto, or upgrade both libc5 and libc6 from hamm on
the same dpkg command line.
