I get the feeling my message offended you -- if so, apologies, wasn't my
intention. Consider the point of view of someone who might take time to help

doesn't give the info one needs to determine what's going on.

You need to be aware that the main problem with 5.1-pre is that its
glibc is not guaranteed to work.

Safe to ignore

Yes. And about those mc errors? Also be sure to try the method Chris
gave to upgrade flex and bison.
