    Hey, that last apt-get upgrade left konqueror in a state that it won’t start (well, it will moaning and groanig, and then it will moan and groan instead of showing any web page).

    I’m posting this with lynx…

    Not very stable, at least for me 🙁

    I’ve found that apt-get is perfect when you stay on the stable branche (apt-get update and apt-get upgrade in a cron is a little juwel!) or when upgrading from the stable to a new stable release.

    Woody packages *may* be broken, that why it’s called testing and there’s nothing apt-get can do when the problem it’s in the package itself.

    Part of using testing is getting used to working around the problems. I had the problem with kdelibs3 as well. Since I usually work in gnome, it was not a big deal. I just removed kdebase (that removed a whole bunch of kde programs) and then installed kdelibs3. I think from there konqueror can be reinstalled to run on gnome….and the other programs in kde can be installed individually. I generally have installed both kde and gnome (Rarely do both have simultaneous problems in Testing). In this case, I’ll just wait until the problem with kdebase and kdelibs3 is worked out before reinstalling kdebase.

    apt-get dist-upgrade

    xserver-xfree86 won’t know that I have already told the system that I have a spanish keyboard and it will merrily configure it as a us keyboard without asking

    Just run the “castellanizar” program, which you’ll find in the “user-es” package.
