Some of the updates are superceded by later ones; the earlier updates have been withdrawn from the FTP site. I will be doing the same thing soon (installing Finestra from scratch on a development box), and my plan is to simply apply the current ones in some order I determine, unrelated to the advisory sequence.

One note; you will lose some of your system logs when you apply the syslog-ng update. Save them first if it matters.

Let us know how you make out. -- Marcus Redivo http://www.binarytool.com http://www.eclectica.ca ------------------------------------------------------------------------ To unsubscribe email engarde-users-request@engardelinux.org with "unsubscribe" in the subject of the message.
