Hi I noticed that one of the apps was not running so i tried to run it from the command prompt

An error was thrown cannot open shared file.  No such file or directory.

I tried uninstalling libxfce4util so I can do a complete re-install.   Once libxfce4util was removed from gslapt I could no longer start xfce.  I cannot find this library using slept-get

When booting to the cli and issuing the startxfce I get
Module fbcon  cannot open shared file.  No such file or directory.
I also had the same error with but was able to reinstall

I noticed the xfce-4.8-i586-18vl70 was not installed, I tried installing the package with no results.

Any suggestions or should I do a clean install of 7.1, since this is in RC mode, will I be able to use glapt to update to the released version?
