Hmm. I just upgraded with apt this morning, and haven't had any
problems...yet. udev is the solution to hotplug woes, yes ? Could you
share the sort of woes I should expect ?
My system was running FC1, then upgraded to 1.9, then downgraded
semi-manuallly to 1.0 again, then upgraded to 2.0, then upgraded to 3.0.
It seems OK, though the tetex packages caused apt to get confused, and run
busy till I removed them manually, and kicked off the dist-upgrade again.
