Thanks to Doug MacFarlane, Osamu Aoki, J. W. Dixon and Rob Weir for
Just to clear up why I did what I did, which people understandably
wondered about: I needed 4.2, not 4.1 (at least, so I was told by a
guy with the same notebook). At the time I did it, 4.2 was not in
testing (this was a while ago; I have been very busy since then).
Now I'll try using of the Debianized 4.2 packages people indicated,
and I will read up on libc6 issues between woody and testing before
I decide which way to go.
You're a high-performance list, guys!
