Hmm, than the update is more a must than a "could be", thanks for the info.

Okay, the second point is not what i want. -)

Perhaps i see a problem which is not a problem and i try to ask about what is
the most important point for me: Do i have to recompile my local packages (at
example qt3 or kde3*) after i do this update (gcc 4.3->4.4) because there is
a so bump? If not, than i don't have to prevent the update because the nr.1
for me is to avoid having no GUI.

See you, Attila
