you provide AIX 4.2 binaries ??
The AIX 4.2 binaries we have in use I compiled myself, and there was some
trouble doing this (e.g. qtcsh doesn't compile). So I hoped to avoid dealing
with this once more.
Because the mentioned machines are no login and/or interactive machines,
I assume, only changes in daemons between p2 and p6 could make problems ?
