The Lazy Man's Upgrade, Part Deux

After resolving some dependancies by forcing some package installs, and whatnot, I found that I was unable to login over SSH, because of the following error:

PAM pam_get_user: no conv element in pamh

The new version of PAM most likely didn't get along with the sshd(8) version that was still resident in memory. In any case, since I needed to pop a new kernel onto the bootloader, I just did that and rebooted.

bash-2.05a$ uname -a
Linux gallup 2.4.18-19.7.x #1 Thu Dec 12 09:00:42 EST 2002 i686 unknown

I wonder how different this system is from a stock RedHat 7.3 installation.

Amici, Romani, Paisanos

My bad Latin aside, Julius Caesar is now reporting from the front lines in Gaul. [via Lance Knobel]
Without Roman intervention, Germans would overpower Gaul and settle their people there, which would create an unacceptable situation: a powerful, warlike people on Rome's northern border. So, ultimately, the war in Gaul is not about Gaul - it's about Gaul's more powerful neighbour, Germany.
