    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
