actually i was bragging about Debian ( i'm not that of an Ubuntu user; although my secondary machine has it, it's not my current one )
I was just stating the distros where i don't see issue. Chill.

You won't know until you try and if you do, please test with Debian Sid ( such as ) and not with Ubuntu ( they tend to care less about upstream so no need to encourge them :P )

yep, might be, that's why i pointed out to the patches used by Mandriva as opossed to those used by Debian or others.

That's why until you get a chance to test 1.7.7 used in other distros than Mandriva we won't learn anything new.
