Attention Debian Users - Erlang 10.b.8 tests

Hello all,

I've been working on the new upstream release of the Debian Erlang packages.  
As per requests of some users in the past, the package has been split in 3.  
GS based applications are now in their own package called erlang-x11 and 
application that don't need GS in erlang-nox.  Erlang-mode is now in it's own 
package too.

Transition should be easy once the package are uploaded to the main Debian 
archive but I still need to check that with some experts.

In the meantime, I need to check if it works for everybody.  Debian users 
interested in the new version can get the .debs at:

or through apt by adding:

deb unstable/
deb-src unstable/

to /etc/apt/sources.list

and do:

apt-get install erlang=1:10.b.8-1 erlang-base=1:10.b.8-1

to upgrade their current packages.  I know this last command line is awkward 
but I needed to explicitely specify the version of each packages to upgrade 
on my system.  There may still be an error in the control files for the 
upgrade.  That is what I need to check with an expert.

I would also be grateful if someone not using an i386 could try to compile the 

I will take bug report directly or on the mailing list.

Thank you for your attention.
