I've installed the new vm (oss flavor), and it seems to run.
I have no sound, but that's always been problematic; I only had it
some of the time before. I'm running alsa under KDE, with OSS
The installation did not automatically remove the previous version;
I'm not sure if it should have. Here's the log:
wheat:/ms/d/download/squeak/LexDebian3.2# dpkg -i squeak-vm-oss_3.2.4653-1_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package squeak-vm-oss.
dpkg: regarding squeak-vm-oss_3.2.4653-1_i386.deb containing squeak-vm-oss:
squeak-vm-oss conflicts with squeak-vm
squeak-vm (version 3.0pre2-2) is installed.
I removed the old one manually, and then was able to install. I also
installed the new image, apparently without incident.

I read the fine manual, and think you're right. It says that a
missing debian version number is considered to precede any version
with a debian version, so I guess 4.1.0-13 is strictly greater then

I was referring to debian packages' source package, in which sense the
source for the vm debs is squeak_3.2.4653.orig.tar.gz and the
associated changes (in the debian sense--the diff) and .dsc files.
Thanks for the info on versioning. It looks good, but I have one
quibble: I think people might want several, e.g., 3.2 images for
testing, or because they had doubts about some of the more recent
updates. Of course, that's all pretty hypothetical unless you start
releasing a string of updated image packages.
Thanks again. Now I can try going forward in the update stream....
