    Subject: How to upgrade

    As a user of 2.2 r0, do I need to do anything out of the ordinary to upgrade to 2.2 r1, or is it the usual apt-get update; apt-get upgrade?

    I used:

    # apt-get update
    # apt-get -u dist-upgrade

    Finally! Mozilla M18 installed by means of apt, without having to upgrade to Unstable! (There was something terribly wrong the first time I loaded it, but this was probably due to a bad de-install of M17 from the Galeon apt repository; when I put on my computer for the 2nd time today, it just plain old worked!)

    Too bad that Galeon is still built exclusively for Woody… But Mozilla M18 is needed in the near future anyway, for Nautilus.

    I really was afraid that the folks at Debian considered the latest Mozilla to be of no importance to Potato. Glad to see that they made the right decisions, and not just put Mozilla on hold because of a rule-of-thumb that a newer major version should not go into stable (or whatever the rule-of-thumb for these things is).

    I have been using Debian irregularly since 2.0 (hamm, iirc), but came back for full-time use with the release of 2.2, and I must say that I am still astonished with it, and with how it differs from other distro’s (I guess you know these arguments). Today I am yet again astonished, first to see revision 1 being released while I didn’t even realize people were working on it, and second to see that they did what I didn’t dare dream of, and update Mozilla. Whoopee!
