As of this morning, the latest version of freeradius in the (karmic 9.10)
repos is 2.1.0. Although 2.1.8 is availible as a lenny backport for debian,
I get the feeling that your suggestion is to stick with distribution
packages whenever possible. Supposing I wanted to use the debian package to
install 2.1.8 onto my ubuntu system the following (taken from
http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/ch-pkg_basics.en.html) should do the trick,
$dpkg-source -x foo_version-revision.dsc
$dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b
$dpkg -i ../foo_version-revision_arch.deb

Version 2.1.8 is available for the lucid lynx (10.04) which just released
(non-beta) this morning. I'm not a firm believer in 'version 1' software and
generally avoid getting new distro-upgrades the day they come out. However
since 10.04 is a long-term-support I may consider installing it. Do you
think that re-installing the OS is worth it in this case, or will I be fine
running the above and building it from source?
