Comment 122 for bug 120375


First, the Intrepid packages won't work, due to toolchain (glibc,
klibc) differences. I just tested out of curiosity in a virtual

Second, under no circumstances would I recommend this as an acceptable
thing to do. If you are beholden to running Hardy, I presume that's
because Hardy is supported as an LTS. Once you start changing the
Hardy LTS packages and replacing them with Intrepid packages, you're
no longer in a supported configuration. Especially when we're talking
about things that are so fundamental to booting your system.

If you would be willing to upgrade these four key packages to
Intrepid, I'd say you would be much better served upgrading to
Intrepid across the board.
