        If you put a shared library in /usr/local/lib which has the same
 so name as a library shipped by Debian, but is not binary compatible
 with it, you will have problems, sinc the loader loads the incompatible
 library, and breaks all packages compiled with the Debian supplied

All the existing 2.0.x kernels are to buggy for 2.1.x to be the main
goal. -- Alan Cox
