But there are still some things messed up (like nothing on my second
monitor works, when I try to run YaST it asks for the root password and
then just disapears, when the screensaver comes up it only comes up on the
first monitor, etc.).
Have you run sax2? maybe your config got messed up / over written.
# init 3
When I try to run 'apt-get upgrade &&
apt-get upgrade' it tells me
file /opt/kde3/share/apps/noatun/simple.plugin from install of
kdemultimedia3-video-xine-3.1.3-7 conflicts with file from package
E: Sub-process /bin/rpm/ returned an error code (184)
It seems like you're trying to install a kde 3.1.3 package(video xine) but
still have the 3.1.1 (video).
Personally I'd run synaptic(available on the apt site or apt-get install
synaptic) then upgrade gnome(ulb), then kde to 3.1.3, then worry about
Also upgrade qt3, and yast. Remove ktamaga if you have it installed, it's the
cause of many problems.
I can't think of any other problems I had upgrading.
I use dial up so i tend to do it smaller pieces than the complete upgrade,
that way i can check whats happening without being overwhelmed ny hundreds of
packages being upgraded.
Making a little progress but not all there yet. What
should I do now?
