Thanks for the heads up, I had that one in my certs. I deleted it. I
happened to look at all the rest, The country of Japan?? There's a bunch
that I have no clue where they came from... this is just stuff I just
trusted and I didn't bother to go looking for fraudulent certs. I'm
assuming the upgrade will show up in synaptic. Thanks again, Ric
