Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 updated (r6)
This is the sixth and final update of Debian GNU/Linux 3.0
(codename `woody') which mainly adds security updates to the stable
release, along with a few corrections to serious problems. Those
who frequently update from security.debian.org/ won't have to
update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org/ are included
in this update.
Please note that this update does not produce a new version of
Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 but only adds a few updated packages to it.
There is no need to throw away 3.0 CDs but only to update against
ftp ftp.debian.org after an
installation, in order to incorporate those late changes.
Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing
the `apt' package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to one
of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of
mirrors is available at:
Please note that packages from non-US.debian.org/ are currently
only available on its mirrors due to the problems the project has
encountered on the host klecker.
This revision adds the following security updates to the stable
release. The Security Team has already released an advisory for
each of these updates.
