FW: Help! I broke it!

Thank you!

Now that I've done this . . .

My installation path thus far was Woody ISO to CD-ROM's, and install
from CD - then upgrade my packages via "updates", "testing", and <gulp>
"unstable" via "apt-get dist-upgrade".

If this is a terrible idea, please give a written slap - preferably with
an explanation why.

Now, after applying these upgrades - am I running on Sarge/Sid?  Or am I
running Woody with some individual packages that are newer?

and you picked a wonderful day for it, too.

the problem is actually with the LIBSTDC++5 package.

downgrade libstdc++5:


dpkg -i libstdc++5_3.3-0pre5_i386.deb

then do an apt-get -f install.  everything *should* just sort itself
