What I did is using the breezy packages (downloaded and forced dpkg),  
but the scripts are really weird. Setting


seem not to affect the init.d script, telling me that my partition is  
not supported: it's an XFS filesystem, I know it's not supported but  
I said memory cache, not in /var...

Is seems the only solutions is commenting the lines checking for the  
partition type and using -memcache option... did you solve this way?
