As far as I know.  How can I tell?  df reports that I have (among other
things) /dev/shm (128104 / 100% available).  Is that swap?  

Is this just not enough memory and swap to upgrade that much?  If so, I
suppose I can take some of the larger groups of packages (openoffice,
gnome, etc) and update just them first.
