Upgrading old machines

I just tested an old machine which was not updated since the migration to Archlinux32.

The only thing I needed to ignore is a dependency to libfontxxx something (-d option
runing pacman -Syyuu).

It's a Lenovo T42, alive and kicking. :-)

It's a wee bit like awaking again an old tractor. you turn the crank and the bulldog runs...

..actually, the Lenovo serves well as a terminal and browser in a server room. :-)

Re: Upgrading old machines

According to wiki's T series page, the T43 was the last IBM branded T-series thinkpad, and chronoloically I think the T42 did come before that, believe it or not.  Of course, large parts of it were probably made by one of lenovo's subsidiaries at the time.
