Approaching the update again, I plan to go to 4.5.16 first at the end of
next week (this is the release marked as "stable" in gentoo terms ...).
The step to 4.7.x or 4.8.x should then be easier/smaller/less scary, right?


I have to upgrade glibc on the way, and gentoo wants me to fix


The server has until now:

# /etc/nsswitch.conf:
# $Header:
/var/cvsroot/gentoo/src/patchsets/glibc/extra/etc/nsswitch.conf,v 1.1

should I go to:

group:       compat dns winbind files

? I am just super cautious here ;-)
