Despite a reflexive belief that everything in Debian would be ...
basically older then me... I had a wee look at the packages.
Turns out, you can have gcc-3.4, or 3.3... or 2.95, which if my
inductive logic circuits haven't been broken by bad DPLL timings, would
imply that there might be actual reasonably up to date stuff in Sarge,
if you look for it.
Can somebody say, what the default would be and more to the point,
assuming (n) packages in Debian would have several versions, would there
be some easy way I could say to apt to use the latest version of
'everything' in sarge ?
ie, don't install gcc-2.95, install 3.4 don't install Gnome 2.2 install
Gnome 2.8 (not that I'd install Gnome) and so on, or would one be in a
situation of having step through the Packages list and manually flag the
fact that a 'newer' package is available then is currently installed and
explicately install said package ?
