Two of my earlier comments still stand.

1. Slide 23: missing -e in the 'echo' command

$ echo "/dev/mtdblock7\t\t/applog\tjffs2\tdefaults\t\t0\t0"

$ echo -e "/dev/mtdblock7\t\t/applog\tjffs2\tdefaults\t\t0\t0"
/dev/mtdblock7      /applog jffs2   defaults        0   0

2. Slides 24-27: header should be "Project-specific packages (x/5)", instead 
   of "... (x/4)".  (Can't TeX do this automatically somehow?)
