there is at present a problem with python2.2 on debian, unstable dist.

there are dependency issues.

gcc 3.3 is now the latest for unstable.

gcc 3.3 contains a package libstdc++-5.

python2.2 is compiled with gcc 3.2.

installing the latest libstdc++-5, which is compiled with gcc 3.3,
causes python2.2 to complain:

/usr/lib/libgcc1_s.so.1 cannot find GCC_3.3 in libstdc++-5.

i thought you should know.


p.s. it's not the only program affected by the broken libstdc++-5.

expecting email to be received and understood is a bit like
picking up the telephone and immediately dialing without
checking for a dial-tone; speaking immediately without listening
for either an answer or ring-tone; hanging up immediately and
then expecting someone to call you (and to be able to call you).
every day, people send out email expecting it to be received
without being tampered with, read by other people, delayed or
simply - without prejudice but lots of incompetence - destroyed.
please therefore treat email more like you would a CB radio
to communicate across the world (via relaying stations):
ask and expect people to confirm receipt; send nothing that
you don't mind everyone in the world knowing about...
