Happy to annouce that I got my working box back with X after several failed attempts which
seemed to mess-up things even further.
This is what I did:
-- mounted VL6LightRC1.
-- opened *.tlz with mc and copied-update allmost all the files over to their respective directories.
-- vasm autosetup
-- sh /var/log/scripts/font-misc-misc-1.0.0-noarch-3
-- entered startx and closed my eyes
-- opened my eyes and something pretty was smiling at me.
Great SIGH, nothing was lost all is working properly even better, mc does now open iso files.
