Have you updated packages on your system from the repo?  Particularly a distro-upgrade option that updates all new packages?  If so then that could be the cause of your problems.  From past posts, it seems that a distro-upgrade is actually more problematic than helpful.

Well i guess that must be my problem then because I did upgrade all the newer packages in slapt-get. So i have to install VL again?

That might be the easiest way around the problem, unless anyone can suggest otherwise. You might want to read the documentation on the VL packaging system warning about full system upgrades being dangerous:
