The other day I upgraded my daughters pc running XFCE, and met the Drak3d problem mentioned in the
XFCE forum, eg. http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,110836.0.html
Today I upgraded mine to see if the same thing would happen, and it did.
I gather from other posts in the XFCE forum that until a new iso is released there is no way round this short of reinstalling and manually selecting updates. Since she is computer illiterate, and only uses it for emails etc this is not an
option, so I have decided to investigate LXDE. Her pc is too old to run KDE or Gnome, and apart from that I don't think
that she would find them usable. (This of course applies only to KDE4 and the latest Gnome. Earlier versions
of these may well be ok, but they seem to be no longer available.)
If I do switch to LXDE, am I likely to run into the same problem on updating ?
I can find no mention of Drak3d on this forum, so am hoping that this means that the
problem does not exist in this case.
Can anyone advise me ?
