Re: [WARNING: EXPERIMENTAL] Backported libc6-2.17 for Wheezy?

Time to take the test. I recently willingly screwed up one of my bare #! VMs, so I could run the latest version of Scrivener. That machine has only one usage (to write in a clean and peaceful environment), so I didn't care much. Currently installing Waldorf on a new one, will update this post with the results.

@boisei0 -- very brave sir, thank you! smile
It would be awesome if you could feed back your experience directly to @stevo (on the MEPIS forums, also on the Debian forum as @stevepusser) as well, because he knows far more about this than me.

@Alad -- according to @stevo on the MEPIS forums, they've been using it for a while with no reported problems...

Judging by his posts on the Debian forum, he really knows what he's doing.

So how would I use this backport? It looks wonderful but I'm not sure how to update!
