Was there a reason that you mixed slink and potato pieces? It's really
hard to find a problem when you do this. Especially with slink and
potato, which are based on two different versions of glibc (2.0 and

My suggestion would be to go with just one distribution and then let
us know about any problems.

Most problems with DDD aren't problems with DDD, but problems with
Lesstif. Until Lesstif goes stable I've been staying away from the
