Thanks both of you for getting back to me. OK, I'm going to reinstall selecting just X11 bulk, as I currently have only 123 MB free of my 3 Gig root partition
I have a couple other questions I couldn't find answers to in searching the forums. I was able to use the package manager to update my system. That was easy and much like other distros I've used. Then I noticed in the package lists, the most current version of Firefox available from the repos is 3.6. So do people normally just install newer browser versions directly with tar files?
The other thing I checked out was installing wine. I found it easily enough in the repos, but the package manager gave me a long list of missing dependencies. Is there a way to tell the package manager to just install all those files as well? If not, then how do most people normally install wine?
I hope these aren't stupid questions. Thanks again.
