How are you doing this?  Do you just go get the packages and 'dpkg -i' them
or do you use apt?  There are a bunch of things I want to upgrade on my
system but I assumed that all of the potato packages would have dependencies
to library versions I don't have and that updating my libraries would
break slink packages that I do have.
