Hello. Just for fun - seriously - I launched gslapt and chose to upgrade all packages (except, of course, blacklisted packages). Everything seemed fine until I rebooted. Now, all of the boot images are messed up in some way. For example, there was no grub image. That was easy to fix: modify menu.lst from "menu.xpm" to "menu-grub.xpm". A similar issue occured when loggin in: I got the message that "/opt/kde/share/apps/kdm/themes/GlassLights-SOHO" could not be found. Of course not, the needed folder is "/opt/kde/share/apps/kdm/GlassLights-SOHO". What happened? How do I fix these problems? Thanks.

P.S. Also, sometimes I click the kmenu button and click the desktop to close the menu, and a black box is where the menu just was. If I click the menu and the desktop again, problem solved. How about a permanent solution? I think this is related to the upgrade.

I recommend you to reinstall your system.....
a full system upgrade using gslapt or slapt-get will crash your system....

I suppose that might work, but I won't do it until I have finished my experiments. VL is near-perfect for me: I got all of my apps installed. Now I just need to figure out how to solve some sound system problems and figure out how to do upgrades and this one (vl soho 5.Cool is a keeper. Thanks.

No, this is fixable. I personally wouldn't upgrade all, I stay with the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mindset.

This post might help you solve the issue with the glasslight thing:

If it doesn't, search the forum on glasslight, there were more posts about this.

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
