This method using debian package creates a locale problem it also broke avidemux on my 4.12 Gpup system you are much wiser to use the following packages from here.

This covers the issue of glibc update. Able to install latest Opera.

Seamonkey directly downloaded from Mozilla can be unzipped to opt in a seamonkey directory - use dbus and dbusglib pets to enable system support, it runs without this update.

PostPosted: Wed 05 Jun 2013, 22:51    Post subject: Many useful other updates from Shinobar  

Shinobar has some good updates for the "4" series like ffmpeg and Xine.

I have used these along with the Glibc updates to build up my system from 4.12 barebones. This is a great alternative to the hole left by the ceasing of Wary being developed for old machines.

For the time being at least, you might be able to replace those with nobus.

That hasn't happened...yet.
