This seems to work
Had to try a couple times to get it right and forgot the --no-upgrade-
Booting the 4.4.89

 I used the following in a terminal as root (su <enter> password <enter>)

slapt-get -u
slapt-get -search kernel

slapt-get -i kernel4.4-4.4.89-x86-1vl72
slapt-get -i kernel4.4-modules-4.4.89-x86-1vl72

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

no issues so far

Nightflier's suggestion to replace the use of wicd with using Network Manager is a good one for you, I think. First, you need wifi working in order to install Network Manager, I think.

Ctrl-a might be the easiest way to get root access in terminal. Enter root password, then
Code: [Select]
rm /var/run/wicd/wicd.pid
You may need to reboot up to three times for Wicd to start working again. Network Manager installation comes in the next post; you might be doing this in real time, right now, for all I know :)

Okay i actually already reinstalled haha, so i have internet connection currently

Don't reinstall.

Stand by. Just dropping this first note in hopes of saving you extra work. Details in a bit.

I currently can't connect with wired but before wicd broke it worked fine.

so how do i go about replacing it with NetworkManager and network-manager-applet.

i guess i should reinstall so i can get access to internet first of all

Hi. Has anyone managed to install Softmaker Office (the latest version) in VLocity 7.2? I know LibreOffice is available but I find Softmaker better for what I call "mission critical" documents. (Also, I've already paid for it although I got it at a discount).

Thanks in advance,

CP .

It is possible that the power loss confused it. However, you are not the first one to experience problems with wicd, so it may be advisable to replace it with NetworkManager and network-manager-applet.

Can you connect your laptop to a wired connection with Internet access?
