Re: upgrading to potato problem



I'm a new user to debian too. The thing is that these compiler message
results in the error so they are not warnings but errors. I've also been
getting those exact messages from ldconfig but they didn't seem to be
troublesome. I had to install emacs19 along with 20 but as soon as my
system was configured it was out of there because it was causing
too many conflicts with version 20.
