And Debian Sarge is still at 5.2.1.
(Not to obsolete iproute and ipsec-tools versions)

Ok, Debian Sarge is scheduled for removal from my
system.

What: Debian Sarge
When: 2006-02-04
Files: ssh root@bertha -c "find /bin /sbin /usr /lib"

Why: Its maintained to slow for a number of years
and can be replaced by Kubuntu or Ubuntu.
Having a recent kernel (with more bugs fixed)
and trying to use it, becomes harder and harder.

Who: $FROM
