Re: GDM Crashing/Closing

Why wait?

A) Potato doesn't support 50% of my hardware without upgrading to
unstable (which is a mite difficult).

B) Even on a cable modem, doing a full apt-get dist-upgrade to unstable
takes a very very very long time.

C) It will be a serious pain to copy all my data, and resetup all my
software, and I want to put it off.

I'll wait until only C is left, since that is unaviodable.  ^,^
