Agreed, thanks for the suggestion.  The only problem I have with it is
that the output is not terribly informative (all the packages that are
to be upgraded are marked as newly installed), and there are some
quirks like java-docs that would be re-installed this way.

Agreed again.  I am using kernel 2.6.6 so I am tempted to do it; on
the other hand I am looking at days of building on a production
machine so this is not quite a thing I would enjoy...  So my
questionis, is NTPL stable enough by now on the PPC, and is in your
opinion worth it?


If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as
it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.
