You needed to use the -p option which would get packages if it can. If
you upgrade early, you need a cpu with considerable power. The problem
is being patient long enough :).
I have an AMD 2400+ XP and it had to build the gnome stuff and the new
release of kde-3.4.3. It took a while :). However, I had packages on
it, that I could move to my other 5.4 computers, long before they had
packages on Marcus' tinderbox, which is where the gnome_upgrade.sh
script, which came along about 10 Novermber, gets the gnome packages.
