Since I no longer saw "kde4" in the repository, I changed my synaptic repository setting to "kde" instead. Only problem though, my laptop now crashes upon boot. :-( I see a generic localhost login screen and then a frozen command prompt that's inside a tiny version of the screen. It appears to then be locked up. I can use safe made, but that's all. Typing "xstart" just locked it up again like above. It also appears I do not have internet via safe mode.
Any ideas? I'm not quite sure how to proceed and only wanted to be sure I was completely up to date. Typing on a phone to post my question also really sucks. :-(
Thanks for any help you guys can offer.
